Giza: aerial map of pyramids and tombs

Aerial map of Giza .

This aerial photo is labelled to show the pyramids, the Sphinx, and other monuments at Giza. Each of the three main pyramids has its own mortuary temple, and the central pyramid (for Cephren) also has a valley temple located at the start of a ceremonial pathway near the sphinx. There are also several queens' pyramids, and various clusters of tombs for nobility, especially on the right side of the image.
