The pyramids of Giza, which were built between 2630 and 1530 BC, are called the pyramids of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure. The reason for their construction was to make them cemeteries to bury kings in. Each king built a pyramid until he was buried in it after his death.
Many things were buried with the king inside the pyramid, such as his private possessions, his favourite clothes, his belongings, what he preferred for food and drink, all his ornaments and jewelry, and everything that the king loved and was close to himself, and this is definitely because they believe that there is another life after death and he must use what he used in his first life in his second life.
