    There are total of 138 pyramids which were discovered in Egpyt as of 2008. Most of them were built like tombs for the country's Pharaohs. The ancient Egyptian pyramids were found at Saqqara, northwest of Memphis. The earliest among these is the Pyramid of Djoser(in 2630 BC-2611 BC). It was built during the third dynasty. These pyramids are generally considered to be the world's oldest monumental structures. The estimated workers to build the pyramids were from 20,000-100,000. The most famous pyramids were found at Giza. Some pyramids of Giza are considered the largest structures ever built. This is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
