This world is very beautiful. Nature has made this world very colorful with its color. With the union of sea, mountain and land, nature has prepared for us such a vision, which to imagine is sometimes like a dream for a human being. Nature has added so much color in the world that the desire to make it more beautiful has also arisen in humans. Sometimes for his remembrance, sometimes for surrendering to art, sometimes due to some other reason, humans have done many such creations which have made this world even more beautiful.

The composition of these pyramids in Egypt is a puzzle. The specialty of this pyramid built in memory of Pharaoh Khufu is that it is built by cutting stones into water, placing one stone on top of another. The stones have been placed in such a way that there is no place to penetrate even a hair in it. It is still facing the brunt of time. The artisans gave shape to this work using mathematics.
