Pyramid of Khafre
The Main Passageway
The entrance into the pyramid interior is level, with few inclines, and leads straight to the main burial chamber. The construction is far simpler than that of Khufu’s pyramid.
The Burial Sarcophagus
The granite sarcophagus of Khafre is positioned fairly low compared to that found in the pyramid of Khufu, or of Khafre’s contemporaries. The lid is still in the pyramid, and awes with its weight and thickness.
The Sphinx Connection
The Great Sphinx has been identified as a likeness of Khafre. The Sphinx Valley Temple allows travelers to get up close and personal, right atop the remnants of the Khafre’s pyramid causeway, cleared by Dr. Zahi Hawass.
