Description

The Pyramid of Khafre or of Chephren [1] Arabic: The pyramid has a base length of The pyramid was likely opened and robbed during the First Intermediate Period. On the wall of the burial chamberthere is an Arabic graffito that probably dates from the same time. It is not known when the casing stones of the pyramid were robbed; however, they were presumably still in place bywhen John Greaves, professor of Astronomy at the University of Oxford in his " Pyramidographia ," wrote that, while its stones weren't as large or as regularly laid as in Khufu 's, the surface was smooth and even free of breaches of inequalities, except on the south.

It was first explored in modern times by Giovanni Belzoni on March 2,when the original entrance was found on the north side of the pyramid and the burial chamber was visited. Belzoni had hopes of finding an intact burial. However, the chamber was empty except for an open sarcophagus and its broken lid on the floor.

The first complete exploration was conducted by John Perring in InAuguste Mariette partially excavated Khafre's First date then in El Giza temple, and, inwhile completing its clearance, he managed to discover a diorite statue.

Like the Great Pyramida rock outcropping was used in the core. The pyramid is built of horizontal courses. The courses are rough and irregular for the first half of its height but a narrow band of regular masonry is clear in the midsection of the pyramid.

At the northwest corner of the pyramid, the bedrock was fashioned into steps. The bottom course of casing stones was made out of pink granite but the remainder of the pyramid was cased in Tura Limestone. Close examination reveals that the corner First date then in El Giza of remaining casing stones are not completely straight, but are staggered by a few millimeters.

One theory is that this is due to settling from seismic activity. An alternative theory postulates that the slope on the blocks was cut to shape before being placed due to the limited working space towards the top of the pyramid. Two entrances lead to the burial chamber, one that opens The lower descending passageway is carved completely out of the bedrock, descending, running horizontal, then ascending to join the horizontal passage leading to the burial chamber.

This would place the entrance to the lower descending passage within the masonry of the pyramid. While the bedrock is cut away farther from the pyramid on the north side than on the west side, it First date then in El Giza not clear that there is enough room on the plateau for the enclosure wall and pyramid First date then in El Giza. An alternative theory is that, as with many earlier pyramids, plans First date then in El Giza Dating violence message and the entrance was moved midway through construction.

There is a subsidiary chamber, equal in length to the c. It may be used to store offerings, store burial equipment, or it may be a serdab chamber. The upper descending passage is clad in granite and descends to join with the horizontal passage to the burial chamber. The burial chamber was carved out of a pit in the bedrock.

The roof is constructed of gabled limestone beams. The chamber is rectangular, Khafre's sarcophagus was carved out of a solid block of granite and sunk partially in the floor, in it, Belzoni found bones of an animal, possibly a bull.

Another pit in the floor likely contained the canopic chestits First date then in El Giza would have been one of the pavement slabs.

Along the centerline of the pyramid on the south side was a satellite pyramid, but almost nothing remains other than some core blocks and the outline of the foundation. It contains two descending passages, one of them ending in a dead end with a niche which contained pieces of ritualistic furniture. The temples of Khafre's complex survive in much better condition than Khufu's, this being specially First date then in El Giza to the Valley Temple, which is substantially preserved.

Though it is now largely in ruins, enough First date then in El Giza it survives to understand the plan. It is larger than previous temples and Allwhite dating the first to include all five standard elements of later mortuary temples: There were over 50 life size statues of Khafre, but these were removed and recycled, possibly by Ramses II. The temple was built of megalithic blocks the largest is First date then in El Giza estimated Slim sex in Kecskemet [14].

A causeway runs It is built of megalithic blocks sheathed in red granite. The square pillars of the T-shaped hallway were made of solid granite, and the floor was paved in alabaster. The exterior was built of huge blocks, some weighing over tonnes.

These columns have since been plundered. The interior, made of granite of the Valley Temple, is remarkably well preserved. The exterior made of limestone is much more weathered. The so-called [17] temple of the Sphinx is not attested to any king, but structural similarities to Khafre's mortuary temple point to him as its builder.

Opening to a hall with 24 columns, each with its own statue, two sanctuaries and symmetric design, it is possible but unsure if this temple had any symbolism attached to the finished plan. The sphinxprobably built out of a rock formation used to cut the blocks for the pyramid itself, may have been part of the complex.
