Khafre's pyramid was built by Khufu's son, starting a family business. Although smaller, a trick of the eye often makes it appear larger than Khufu's

Book a tour so your not harassed by vendors. Vendors ruined my experience. It could be turned into a horror movie “attack if the crazy vendors”. I thought I’d go in, walk around (it’s a lot of walking), then go back to my hotel. Nope......More

This was the backdrop from the Bollywood songs - Teri Ore (Singh is King) & Suraj Huad Maddham. It inspired us also to travel and see this place with our own eyes. Mind blowing! We simply loved it :-)

Constructed on higher ground, it provides the optical illusion that it’s larger than Khufu’s pyramid. The well preserved Tura limestone at the top makes it instantly recognizable. Do visit the Valley Temple near the Sphinx, one -if not the best preserved valley temple in the...More

When I stood in front of this pyramid I wanted to pinch myself. It is simply amazing that ancient people built this structure and it is still standing!

Had an opportunity to visit the burial chamber for a price of LE 100. Just mind clogging as to how it was constructed with no clear explanation given. Just takes your breath away.

This was built by Khafre. This pyramid still has its outer casing on the top. The 3 pyramids together make for a fabulous setting.

We visited the second pyramid built by Khufu's son Khafre. It appears to be taller but has been built on slightly higher land and hence the illusion. We had already seen the Great Pyramid as a part of our tour and hence went only close...More
