Mikerinos Pyramid is indeed the smallest of the three pyramids but it’s well preserved (apart from the fact that the covering stones are missing) as it’s made of granite stone. Make sure you climb above the Mikerinos Pyramid to reach the observation point there, overlooking...More

This is the smallest pyramid and once again should come under the Giza things to do. Avoid visiting it from inside as you can see the one in Saqqara which is far better. Also, this is the best place to get camels to get yourself...More

Had the chance to walk deep inside the pyramid and it was a creepy but very cool experience. The walk down is very shallow and very claustrophobic. That being said, once inside at the bottom, you really feel like you stepped back in time.

This smallest of the Three Great Pyramids, Mikerinos was built for the grandson, Cheops. It is better preferred as evidenced by the plastered part.

The Pyramid of Menkaure (Mikerinos), located on the Giza Plateau, Egypt, is the smallest of the three main Pyramids of Giza. It is still impressive in size and structure. Well worth the visit to Giza Plateau for this and the other Pyramids.
