It’s one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The pyramids and the sphinx look beautiful and majestic. Characterized by a sandy, desert climate and terrain with little vegetation, the famous Giza Necropolis is located in this geographical area. Modern Giza's layout is accessed by two main roads. One from the north leads to Khufu's pyramids and the other leads near the Sphinx's forecourt from the east. They cross the River Nile from east bank and follow the causeway westward. The three pyramids - Khufu, Khafra, and Menkaura are situated diagonally through the site dominate the plateau and running in southwest.
