Visit to Mikerinos Pyramid in Giza

This smallest of the Three Great Pyramids, Mikerinos was built for the grandson, Cheops. It is better preferred as evidenced by the plastered part.

The Pyramid of Menkaure (Mikerinos), located on the Giza Plateau, Egypt, is the smallest of the three main Pyramids of Giza. It is still impressive in size and structure. Well worth the visit to Giza Plateau for this and the other Pyramids.

The Menkaure pyramid is the smallest pyramid of the 3 and it is definitely a pyramid worth seeing. You can also enter the pyramid and descent to the chamber.

This is a bit confusing that it is a sight on its own, this is the smallest of the great pyramids of giza, and is visited as part of the Giza Platue, while buying your ticket you have the option of getting access to going into Keops for an extra cost, if you want to save up the extra pounds,...

This is the smallest of the three pyramids at Giza but it is still a remarkable sight. You can access this Pyramid by some steep wood steps, but the chamber below is empty and not really worth the effort.The passage is narrow and not wide enough for people to pass, so check that the way is clear before embarking.

We did the pyramids twice, once in the morning through horse and carriage with the historical narration and the second time, an afternoon camel safari. We did different courses both time and totally amazing, i couldnt recommend which one was better,... More

Gizeh is a must see but most people only think of the Great Pyramid. There are three and each is worth a look

Sometimes overlooked (see what I did there) compared to the other great pyramids but in its own way still grand. Just not as big as the other two.

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
