Egypt has to offer some of the oldest monuments built by humans. Until a century or two back, The Pyramids of Giza were the largest manmade structures. Their fascinating grandeur along with their sheer massiveness of their presence is the key reasons behind the large number of footfalls at this tourist destination. According to estimates, they attract some 5000 tourists every day on an average!
Another major monument site is the ruins of the Abu Simbel. Located towards the southern border of the country, they depict the rich heritage of the Egyptian Civilization through the massive structures carved from the mountain under the great leadership of the Pharaoh Ramses II.
