Mikerinos is the third, and the smallest pyramid in the Giza plateau, and it has its own history. Flanked by the side of other two massive pyramids, this seems insignificant, but when one sees it from the Tomb of Queens, its majesty comes out clearly in the backdrop of Cairo city. This is also located in the Pyramids park, so... More

Did you know why it is the smallest of the three Gizeh Piramids? Because Mikerinos wanted to pay respect to his parents Cheops and Chefren. The three big piramids are iconic and a must-see when visiting Egypt!

After you complete viewing the three pyramids, you can witness the brief difference in the construction material. This pyramid is the smallest of all and dedicated to Menkaure, the son of Kefre and grandson of Keops. Though the ticket to enter the pyramid is only LE 40, but its not worth it as there;s nothing inside

Not as crowded as the other pyramids in Gizeh.Not a lot to see and can be claustrophobic if you decide to crawl down.

Not much to see or do at the 3rd and smallest of the 3. Quick walk by or drive by on the way to the panoramic area for great photos.

This pyramid is entered by a long low passage that opens into a beautiful quiet chamber before the burial chamber of red granite. A very peaceful resting place. Definitely worth a visit.

The pyramid of Menkaure is the smallest of the trio and yet, it stands there in the desert, an imposing structure and a symbol of a great civilization. You can actually descend down into the burial chambers via a steep drop supported by planks. Descend into greatness and the feeling you get once you do will last you a lifetime!

People often overlook this, the smallest of the three pyramids as it's a little up the plateau from it's more impressive brethren but it's a great vantage point for the entire Giza complex with relatively few tourists. Bought a ticket for the interior which was not nearly as interesting as Great Pyramid----you go deep underground to empty chambers garishly lit... More
