Best Answer

There are two reasons. The first reason is to show the great power of the pharaoh. For example, pyramid of Khufu (The Great Giza pyramid), is enormous. This is because Khufu wanted to show people that he was a great pharaoh with great powers.

The second reason is to allow the king to go to the afterlife with ease. Deceased people needs food, water and to remember their face to go to the after life. Food and water was simply for eating and drinking during the adventure to the afterlife. They needed to remember their face to go to the afterlife.
