Egyptians build pyramids to honour their pharaohs because he was receiver of worship and was considered as gods, and even people were following his commands.Then egyptians constructed massive structures called as pyramids as the dead leaders or pharaohs tombs, which was built to keep the pharaohs body and also to provide his soul a residential place after death.Egyptians also had a belief that their pharaoh will rule them in his next life so for his use in his next life they stacked clothes, food and other private items inside the pyramid .
