The Khufu pyramid may be the largest but the pyramid of Menkaure which is the smallest of the three pyramids is perhaps the best. Built by the 4th dynasty pharaoh Menkaure, this was completed by his son Shepseskaf. The pyramid is built with granite and...More

This was the last pyramid to tick off the list for me at Giza as I had been in the other two and Queen's tomb on separate visits. Egypt seems to be scrambling for visitors these days, and unfortunately seem to be letting tourists do...More

The smallest of the three but likely meant to have been the most stunning in its time, having been intended to have been covered completely in granite. Don't stop after seeing the second, Menkaure is worth it! Quick tip: if you're a student and under...More

It's amazing to look at the pyramids and think when and how they were built. Thousands of years ago and still standing Built by hand. No machines to cut and shape the stones. No computers to plan the build.

The mystery of the pyramid is attracting us more and more. We know little about their purpose and how they are built. Official teaching is inaccurate and complete guesswork. Menkaure Pyramid is as magnificent as any other Pyramid, but it is our favorite. We walked...More
