I think a secondary but important purpose was ceremonial/theological/cosmological, since they built the pyramids to roughly correspond with Orion's belt
There's certainly a seremonial/theological element to them, but in fact the similarity to the layout of Orion's Belt is pretty much entirely down to the geological structure of the Giza Plateau- you couldn't physically put three pyramids there in any other arrangement, because that arrangement is the only one supported by solid enough bedrock there...
