Pyramid of Chephren Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Chephren, son of Cheops, decided to install his tomb south of his father's, thus taking his place in the family line. Construction techniques had been perfected, and Chephren's pyramid was erected more quickly. Although not as tall, it looks slimmer than its neighbour as its incline is two degrees greater. The pyramids of Chephren and Cheops represent the apogee of the monumental gigantism of the Egyptian pyramids. It is also worth visiting the surrounding vestiges (and in particular its partly preserved causeway) as, like every pyramid, Chephren was part of a vast funerary complex.
