Google Maps adds Egyptian Monuments to Street View

Google Maps has added Egyptian monuments like the Great Pyramid of Giza to Street View. The various areas of the Giza Necropolis, including the Great Sphinx, and more are all available to view via Street View.

The Giza Necropolis is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world, and is home to the last standing wonder of the ancient world: the Great Pyramid. Built as a tomb and a symbol of eternity for the Pharoah Khufu, it stands 139 meters high (the height of the world’s highest roller coaster!) and was the tallest man-made structure on Earth for 3,800 years. Look beyond it to the west, and you’ll see the pyramids of Khafre and Menkaure, built by Khufu’s son and grandson.

Because lets face it – the world is too scary, why even go out”? Well my friend now you can go on vacation without leaving the comfort of your own home!
