The other two pyramids of the complex are the Chephren pyramid and Mykerinus pyramid,
Next is a visit to the Great Sphinx, the head of a pharaoh with a lion's body, which dates back to the time of the King Chephren. The face of the Sphinx is generally believed to represent the pharaoh, Chephren.

After lunch at a local restaurant, travel to Memphis, which was founded by King Menes and was the capital of Old Egypt during the Old Kingdom. It was considered to be a center of rule and culture for over 3000 years as the first capital of Egypt.
Here we can also see the famous Statue of Ramses II, which is a 3,200-year-old figure of Ramesses II, depicting him standing. It was discovered in 1820 by Giovanni Battista Caviglia at the Great Temple of Ptah near Memphis, Egypt.
