When we think of Egypt, its great pyramids often come to mind. But, it turns out, that world’s largest pyramid is nowhere near Egypt.
And it’s actually ridiculously hard to find if you don’t know what you’re looking for. So where is the world’s largest pyramid?
It’s in Puebla, Mexico. Experts aren’t sure who constructed it, but they know it’s about 2,300 years old. Most of the pyramid is covered in grass — so it looks more like a giant hill than a pyramid. But don’t be fooled.
The pyramid itself is about 9 Olympic swimming pools long and 1.3 pools tall. It could almost fit 2 Great Pyramids of Giza inside it.
Since rediscovering it in the early 1900s, archaeologists have uncovered over 400 human burials in and around the pyramid.
