Great Pyramid of Giza

It is believed the pyramid was built as a tomb for fourth dynasty 
Egyptian pharaoh Khufu and was constructed over a 20 year period. 
Khufu's vizier, Hemon, or Hemiunu, is believed by some to be the architect of the 
Great Pyramid.[2] It is thought that, at construction, the Great Pyramid was originally 280 Egyptian cubits tall,146.5 metres 
(480.6 ft) but with erosion and absence of its pyramidion, 
its present height is 138.8 metres (455.4 ft). Each base side was 440 cubits, 230.4 metres (755.9 ft) long. 
The mass of the pyramid is estimated at 5.9 million tonnes. The volume, including an internal hillock, 
is roughly 2,500,000 cubic metres.[3] Based on these estimates, building this in 20 years would involve installing 
approximately 800 tonnes of stone every day. 
Similarly, since it consists of an estimated 2.3 million blocks, 
completing the building in 20 years would involve moving an average of more than 12 of the blocks into place each hour, 
day and night. The first precision measurements of the pyramid were made by 
Egyptologist Sir Flinders Petrie in 1880–82 and published as The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh
Almost all reports are based on his measurements. 
Many of the casing stones and inner chamber blocks of the Great Pyramid were fit together 
with extremely high precision. Based on measurements taken on the north eastern casing stones, 
the mean opening of the joints is only 0.5 millimetres wide (1/50th of an inch)
