What is the golden ratio pyramid?

A golden ratio pyramid is based on a triangle whose three sides represent the mathematical relationship that defines the golden ratio. This triangle, known as a Kepler triangle, has base of length 1 and a hypotenuse whose length is Phi. The height of this right triangle is the square root of Phi.

Do the pyramids follow the golden ratio?

The most famous monuments of ancient Egypt are the Great Pyramids of Giza. Believed to have been constructed around 4,600 years ago, these pyramids were built around the golden ratio, long before the Greeks and the Parthenon. The largest of the pyramids in Giza contains the use of phi and the golden ratio.
