The Street View images of the only surviving Seven Wonders of the World landmark were collected with Google's Trekker camera, which takes 360-degree photos.

"The civilization of ancient Egypt stood for thousands of years and left behind a rich legacy of architecture, art, medicine, politics, culture and more," said in his blog about the new images. "Now the Egypt of your imagination can be brought to life with new Street View imagery in Google Maps, and you can take a virtual walk among the stunning monuments and rich history of this ancient civilization." 

In addition to the pyramids, Google Street View also captured photos of the Great Sphinx, the Cairo Citadel and the Hanging Church.
