CAIRO, Jan 15 (KUNA) - Sprawling across the Nile's western bank is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Entombing long-gone pharaohs, the Great Pyramids are worthy of the listing as they have withstood the test of time and retained the air of wonder for more than 2,500 years BCE.
More recently, the historical site has been attracting wide media attention as it has been hosting cultural and artistic exhibitions, sporting events and international fashion shows.
These events are a golden opportunity to flaunt the mesmerizing beauty of the scenery as well as the Egyptian heritage, and a chance to promote the tourism sector and the Egyptian economy as a whole. (end) asm.aai
