The paper also argues that the size and shape of the most famous pyramids are a reflection of the religious and cultural values of ancient Egyptian society. Specifically, the pyramids were designed to reflect the power and divinity of the pharaohs entombed in them, and to assist the pharaohs on their journey through the afterlife. There is also evidence that the pyramids were symbolic of the Egyptian sun cult, which was associated with the pharaohs. KEYWORDS: Religion Egypt pharaohs pyramids.
