The Pyramids of Giza are made up of three large pyramids known as The Great Pyramid of Khufu, The Pyramid of Khefre and the Pyramid of Menkaure. They are surrounded by six smaller pyramids belonging to the wives of Khufu and Menkaure. The pyramids are placed to mimic the positions of Orion's Belt. The pyramids charge an area admission fee. An additional charge is levied for entrance into The Great Pyramid, which is limited to the first 250 visitors each day.
