3.  Great Pyramid of Cheops (Khufu)

The Great Pyramid of Cheops (also known as Khufu) is a cultural treasure that holds the only fully intact depiction of the king. This exquisite portrait, a mere three inches tall, was discovered amidst the temple ruins of Abydos in 1903, long after Khufu’s reign. Sadly, many other representations and structures in honor of Khufu were only found in fragments or are now completely lost. Despite this, we are able to piece together information about this great ruler through inscriptions found in his necropolis at Giza and later written accounts. One such document, the Westcar Papyrus from the 13th dynasty, places Khufu as the central figure in its tales. This fascinating glimpse into the past can be enjoyed in just 30

These precious artifacts were discovered by Mariette in 1860, when he stumbled upon them at the bottom of a well hidden within the temple’s floor. And the exploration of this site did not stop there. Over the years, successive excavations by renowned scholars such as Sieglin, Junker, and Reisner have uncovered even more of Khafre’s illustrious statues, each one shedding new light on the life and reign of this enigmatic ruler. In fact, the combined efforts of these esteemed excavators have totaled an impressive 30 minutes of exploration time.

Menkaure’s pyramid complex is comprised of a grand valley temple, a majestic causeway, a solemn mortuary temple, and the illustrious king’s pyramid. Imposing statues of Menkaure, the powerful king, once graced the valley temple. In the 5th Dynasty, an ante-temple was seamlessly integrated into the valley temple, adding to its grandeur.
