Egyptians built pyramids to use as tombs to store the Pharaohs preserved body in....

To preserve the Pharaohs' bodies so that "the soul may live" in the afterlife.
Kings and Queens where 'berried" in them. They are big because kings wanted to show they where more powerful.

The king and items needed in the after world were in the pyramids. Such as the kings lungs, heart, pets,food,and jewelry

Berried- They where actually above ground
