Khufu's pyramid was only part of the complex built for him at Giza.

This complex had many different parts:

  • Three pyramids for Khufu's queens.
  • Several deep pits containing boats that had been buried.
  • A mortuary temple where Khufu would be worshipped after he died.
  • A causeway leading from the pyramid complex down to the valley temple.
  • A valley temple where the pharaoh's funeral would begin.
  • A small 'satellite' pyramid.
  • The mastaba tombs of nobles.
