Khafre - better known as Chefren - is the "owner" of the second large pyramid. He also happens to be Khufu's son.
Khafre's pyramid is slightly shorter than Khufu's pyramid - with 136,5 metres. This pyramid too, when it was built, used to measure some metres more: 143,5 metres, to be precise.
Look up towards the sky... you'll see that this pyramid is different from the others... it looks as if it has a cap. Well, this cap is what's left of the limestone "roof" that used to cover all Giza pyramids.
The inner part of the pyramid is less impressive than Khafu's pyramid, so I guess it's worth skipping it. You should pay closer attention, instead, the remains of the funerary temples, outside the pyramid.
Address: Giza Plain
Directions: About 20-30 minutes from Cairo
