Do you know why the pyramids were built in a triangle shape?

The pyramid represented the first land to appear at the beginning of time- a hill called "Big Ben". The pyramid had sloping sides so that the dead pharaoh could symbolically climb to the sky and live forever. The pyramid represented the rays of the sun. This is why the pyramids were built in a triangular shape. http://www.ancientegypt.co.uk/about/shape.html

Do you know who built the pyramids?

It was the Egyptians who built the Pyramids. The great Pyramids is dated with all the evidence. I'm telling you now, to 4600 years, the region of Khufu. The great Pyramid of Khufu is one of 104 pyramids in Egypt with superstructure, and there are 54 Pyramids with substructure.

How were the pyramids built?

They built the pyramids because the Aztecs, and ancient Egyptians were three very different civilizations with one very large similarity: pyramids. However, of these three ancient cultures, the Egyptians set the standard for most people recognize as classic pyramid design: massive monuments with a square base and four smooth sided triangular sides, rising to a point. The Aztecs and Mayans built their pyramids with tiered steps and a flat top.

Why are these great structures one of the seven wonders of the ancient world?

It's the one of the most important construction of Seven Wonders of the Ancient World because it is agreed that the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids as burial monuments, but many disagree on the principles as to why they were built. There is a theory that says pyramids were made as a machine for resurrection. Ancient Egyptian pyramids will always continue to be one of the seven wonders of the world. www.egyptiandiamond.com/ancient-egyptian-pyramids.php
