Khafre's pyramid is often mistaken as being the largest at Giza due to its central, elevated position. It is, however, slightly smaller than Khufu's, with an original height of 143.5m (470.8ft).
The pyramid was built by Khafre (son of Khufu), the fourth king of the Fourth Dynasty. It is the only pyramid which retains part of its original Tura limestone covering.
Inside, Khafre's pyramid is much more simple than Khufu's, with two entrances leading to an incomplete underground chamber and a central burial chamber. The entrance was discovered and opened by Giovanni Battista Belzoni on 2nd March 1818.
The burial complex also includes a ruined satellite pyramid, a funerary temple, a lower temple, the valley temple and the Sphinx, connected to the main pyramid by a long ramp.
