The Award For The Largest Pyramid Goes To...No Not You, Egypt!

We've been taught since time immemorial (alright, since childhood), that the greatest pyramid in the world is in Egypt. Well, it's time you press delete on that part of info in your brain, because my friends, that is a lie! The Great Pyramid of Giza is the most discussed pyramid in the world, yes, but it is not the biggest, and that's for sure. 

To see the biggest pyramid, you need to go to...*drumroll*....Mexico. Yes, M-E-X-I-C-O. So, it's more an ancient Aztec Temple than a tomb for kings, but it is four times as large and twice in volume as the lovely pyramid in Giza. The fact that it is "hidden under a hill" makes it easier to be missed.
