Who Built the Great Pyramid ?

Who built this Great Pyramid of Giza?
The building of the pyramid is attributed to king Khnum - Khufu and generally known as Khufu (Cheops in Greek) who reigned ancient Egypt from (2551 - 2528b.C.)

When you say "attributed " do you mean that we don't know for sure ?
Yes . There are no official inscriptions whatsoever on inside or outside of this pyramid .

It is only circumstantial deviance , The inscriptions in the mastabas surrounding the pyramid , make several references to the name of Khufu . None of these references , however , refer specifically to Khufu as the builder of the pyramid . The Greek historian . Herodotus , attributed this pyramid to Khufu , based on the information provided to him by his priest informant , who was conveying information at least 2,000 years after the pyramid was built .

Who are the people who built the Khufu Pyramid ?
Almost Almost no historical information exists about the builders if the pyramids , The alleged "tyranny of Cheops (Khufu ) " cited by the Greek historian Herodotus ( C.500B.c.) , was generally accepted , and even elaborated upon , by non-factually writers .

Firstly , there is no evidence to suggest that people were compelled to work against their will . Indeed , if anything , the opposite more probable . Upon rational reflection , it is reasonable ti suppose that they labored willingly . This is not hard to comprehend once the notion of the pyramid being a tomb is dismissed .The sheer quality of craftsmanship in the construction the pyramids suggested a prides suggested a pride in the work .

Secondly , rational scholars challenged the notion of slave labor m since managing such huge numbers of disgruntled slaves , gathered in one small area , would have been a potentially explosive task .

Thirdly , Herodotus reported that his Egyptian guide told him that Khufu's predecessor , Snefru , was a good king . Yet the three mighty pyramids at Dahshur and Meidum , attributed so Snefru , required much more stones and labor than that required for the Great pyramid itself . This is a major contradiction in Herodotus' accountant of the "tyrant" sand "good " Kings .

At the finish how can i answer next questions about the evidences about  Khufu's Pyramid:

This is too much evidence .
You now know the hard facts , based on the elements of the "common theory " of stone cutting , hauling , and hoisting , how can we logically answer the following question :

1 - How did they manage to make the sloping sides of he pyramids absolutely flat ?
2 - How did they make the four sloping sides meet at a perfect point at the summit?
3 - How did they make the tiers so level ?
4 - How did they cut the stones , so that they fit together so precisely ?
5 - What tools did they use ?
6 - How could the required number of workers (estimated at 240-300,000 people) maneuver on the confined building site ?
7 - How did they cut the blocks so uniform ?
8 - How did they place some of the heaviest blocks in the pyramid , at such great heights ?
9 - How wee 115,000 casing blocks all made to fit to hair's breadth and closer ?
10 - How was all the work done in about 20 years ??

    The Great Pyramid is older than Egypt, which is the modern name for old Khem. Egyptians like to take credit for things they had no part in creating.
