Khafre (Chephren) Pyramid in Giza


The Khafre Pyramid, also known as the Pyramid of Khafre or the Chephren Pyramid, is a pyramid located in Giza, Egypt. It is the second-tallest and second-largest pyramid in Giza, standing at 471 feet (143 meters) tall. It was built during the 26th century BC for the Fourth Dynasty Pharaoh Khafre (Chephren) and is believed to have been completed around 2560 BC.

The Khafre Pyramid is made of limestone blocks and has a complex interior system of corridors, chambers, and passages leading to the burial chamber located at the pyramid’s center. The pyramid was originally encased in smooth white limestone, which has since eroded away, leaving only the rough core visible

At the base, the pyramid has a square shape with sides measuring 215 meters (706 feet) long. The pyramid is surrounded by a complex of temples, causeways, and other smaller pyramids that were built for Khafre’s family members.

The Khafre Pyramid is notable for several features, including its impressive height, its use of sophisticated engineering techniques, and the intricate design of its interior. The pyramid is a popular tourist attraction and one of the most visited sites in Egypt.
