This is the only pyramid that retains a little of the smooth light-coloured cladding that once would have covered the entire structure. It gives you a good idea of what all three pyramids would have looked like. A must-see.

The centre of the 3 Great Pyramids, perhaps its the still mostly intact top that sets it apart. This pyramid was not accessible during my stay, where you could walk inside the other 2 pyramids of Giza.

You can feel a great positive energy from this centre pyramid which is located exactly at the geographical centre of the Earth as well as on a leyline - part of a natural energy grid. There is no better place to experience this for yourself...More

While visiting the pyramids of Giza, this is a part of the tour along with the Great Sphinx. if you are satisfied with the main three pyramids, you may skip this and spend more time at the museum.

Breathtaking experience, once in a lifetime must see. Visit early morning as can get very crowded. We used Ramsside Tours to take us around, highly recommended.

In most pictures this appears to be the largest of the three Great Pyramids, but it's simply set on higher ground and still has the top in place.
