Reasons for building the pyramids

An important part of the religion of the ancient Egyptians was the belief in reincarnation. They believed that wealth, wealth and other worldly things will be needed in the world after death. Therefore, after the death of kings and queens, gold, silver and precious gems were given along with the corpse.

Their bodies were mummified and preserved, and all their slaves were killed, so that they would not lack service in the afterlife. In these tombs or pyramids mummies were made before the bodies were buried. There was a novel method behind making mummies. The mummies were preserved in such a way that they would not rot. But the problem was, these mummies and other valuables were feared to be stolen if not kept in a safe place.

Before the construction of the pyramids, trapezoid-shaped tombs called mastabas were built. Rods were not used in mastaba in ancient times. Therefore it was impossible to build these mastabas higher. Over time, step pyramid designs became popular instead of these mastabas.

The main reason behind this is the geometric structure of the pyramid. Usually the entire weight of the building rests on its foundation. So the higher the height the stronger the base must be. The area of the pyramid decreases with height. Since the base of the pyramid has a larger area than the upper layers, the pressure on it is less and the structure is stronger. So the only way to build a very high tomb was to adopt a pyramid shape design.
