Neighborhood: Giza
Overview

At first glance, this pyramid appears taller than the that of Cheops, but this is only because it is built on higher ground and still has its top intact. It was built by the IV Dynasty pharaoh Khafre (Chephren) around 2550 BCE and the first recorded entry was made by Belzoni in 1818. He found no treasure or inscriptions inside, and it is believed to have been looted by Arabs 1000 years earlier. The ticket for the Giza Plateau covers entrance to the site. A separate ticket is required to enter each pyramid and the Solar Boat Museum.
