The pyramid of Khafre was designed to prove that Khafre was just as great as his father, Khufu. Though, the pyramid of Khafre was shorter than the the Pyramid of Khufu
Khafre was so ambitious that he designed the pyramid, which would be his tomb, himself.
The pyramid was built with stone in Giza, Egypt. If you look closely, you can slight mishap in the building at the top
Its designignigning and building took all the way from 2558 B.C. to 2532 B.C.!
Later on, the Egyptians built the Sphinx from the very stones of Khafre's Pyramid!!!
It always amazes me how determined the Egyptians are to build giant, beautiful, structures for such simple reasons.
Here is the design for its model
