Which famous ancient building once stood at a height of 146 metres, the equivalent of a forty-four story building?

Answer: The Great Pyramid of Giza. Erosion has reduced the height to 138 metres, but it remains one of the most important buildings of ancient history. The massive structure was built by fourth dynasty Pharaoh Khufu, or Cheops, and was completed around 2560 BCE.
