The Pyramid of Khafre (Part 2)

The interior of Khafre's pyramid is different from that of his father. The burial chamber is located much lower in the pyramid, being partially above ground level and partially below it.

The sarcophagus (see photo) is undecorated and is set into the floor of the burial chamber. The burial chamber's roof is designed to relief the weight of the pyramid above it (see photo). Numerous famous people have visited Khafre's pyramid, with the famous "archaeologist" Belzoni leaving his name on the wall of the burial chamber (see photo).
