Giza is a city and an historical landmark near the city of Cairo in Egypt on Earth. It is the site of the Great Sphinx and several pyramids, including the Great Pyramid, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.
In the year 2274, two pyramids were discovered on the surface of Zeta Reticuli II. Leonard McCoy said it looked just like Giza “in Egypt of the Middle Kingdom, around 2,000 B.C.” and James T. Kirk agreed. The site also had a statue resembling the Great Sphinx. (TOS comic: "We Are Dying, Egypt, Dying!")
