If by 'the pyramid', you meant the pyramids in Egypt, they were built as tombs. Very rich people would pay to have a pyramid as their tomb. People such as nobles, or pharaohs would have pyramids for their tomb. They were also filled with treasures and objects that the people in the tombs would need in the afterlife.
