PBS captured a rare 360 degrees photograph from the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza, sparking comments of awe and wonder.

According to PBS, while climbing to the top of the Khufu Pyramid is prohibited, permission was provided to “scale the Ancient wonder to share it with you.”

“From this 45-story-tall perch atop Khufu’s Pyramid, you can see Khafre’s Pyramid just to the left of the setting sun. Farther to the left is the Sphinx and Khufu’s three Queens’ Pyramids,” says PBS in a Facebook post.

“The bustling city of Cairo lies beyond, its 10 million inhabitants living and working in the shadows of some of ancient history’s most iconic ruins.”

At the time of writing, the photograph was shared more than 19,000 times and had more than 18,000 reactions.

The photograph comes months after a German tourist illegally climbed the Great Pyramid to capture a video from the peak.

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the last remaining Ancient world wonder.
