Pyramid of Khafre, Memphis, UNESCO, Giza, Egypt 

The pyramid of Khafre is the second largest of the pyramids of Giza, although by placing it on the bedrock Khafre took advantage of the surroundings to make his pyramid appear to be larger than the Great Pyramid of Khufu.

The base of the pyramid is two hundred and fifteen and a half meters  and with its casing in place it was one hundred and forty-eight and a half meters high. There is no firm evidence that Khafre was ever buried in the pyramid, despite the presence of a sarchophagus, and there are no inscriptions inside the monument.
