Due to a construction error made about 4,500 years ago, which landmark is slightly lopsided?
THE GREAT PYRAMID OF GIZA
The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the most remarkable and well-built structures in the world, yet archaeologists have discovered that it actually lopsided due to an error builders made during construction some 4,500 years ago. This error has led to the west side of the pyramid being slightly longer than the east side, creating a base that isn't perfectly square – despite appearances. Although the difference is very slight, it's enough that a modern-day research team was able to detect the small flaw in a new measuring project.
