To me what I find most interesting is it's age. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest structure (as far as I know) and that was built some 4,600 years ago.

Wow, the dig just started a few days ago? I was hoping they would be done by now.
"These are the first uncovered walls of the pyramid," Semir Osmanagic, a Bosnian archaeologist who studied the pyramids of Latin America for 15 years, said of the stonework found Wednesday.
"We can see the surface is perfectly flat. This is the crucial material proof that we are talking pyramids," he said.
Osmanagic believes the structure will prove to be 722 feet high, or a third taller than Egypt's Great Pyramid of Giza.
The huge stone blocks discovered Wednesday appeared to be cut in cubes and polished.
"It is so obvious that the top of the blocks, the surface is man-made," Osmanagic said.
