One of the 3 great pyramids and optically largest as the builder built a smaller pyramid, but chose a higher site than his father.

The second, and second largest, of the pyramids built on the Giza Plateau. Built for Pharaoh Khafre whose name is Chephren in Greek. It was constructed during the reign of the king 2520–2494 BC. It is breathtaking to see and touch.
