 Khafre Chephren Alabaster Egyptian Causeway Pyramid Valley Temple Stone gate at the base of the 550m causeway looking to his Pyramid at Giza from the Valley temple and giving access to the most usual way of viewing the Sphinx through this structure of huge limestone and granite blocks and roof supports. Once there would have been 23 diorite statues of the king standing by each column but only one survives in the Cairo Museum.
