The Pyramids of Egypt were constructed based on Orion’s belt. The design is in perfect alignment with Orion’s Belt. They are geometrical size and spacing exactly to the stars on Orion’s alignment. They were designed as a tribute to where there ancient civilization came from. They were a dedication to their gods from the heavens.
The only surviving wonder of the ancient world, Egypt’s pyramid of Cheops takes up 13 acres of land, and overlooks the neighboring pyramids belonging to this pharaoh’s son and grandson. Experts speculate it took one hundred thousand laborers roughly 20 years to build the pyramid of Cheops alone.
