Piramida Mykerinosa – The westernmost complex is the smallest Mykerinos Pyramid (Menkaure) O 67 m in height, length basis 108 m and 51 ° inclination of the sides Its small size, however, is balanced by the regular proportions and the remnants of the magnificent, granite veneers.
The building was erected approx. 2525 r. p.n.e. Menkaure did not complete his tomb, his son did it, Szepseskaf. W 1196 r. on the orders of one of the caliphs, who regarded the pyramid as a monument to idolatry, Karakuss vizier tore the veneer and made a big hole in the side of the structure. Fortunately, the demolition of the facility was unsuccessful, but remained great, open wound. Interior (unavailable due to renovation) it is unlike any other. It houses an unfinished burial chamber in the upper part and a real chamber in the basement. Above, which reached inside, he found a magnificent basalt sarcophagus with the remains of human remains in a wooden coffin (from the XXVI Dynasty - presently in the British Museum) -it is not known, whether they belonged to Menkaure. The sarcophagus sank off the coast of Portugal while being transported to Britain.
The ramp from the pyramid leads towards the lower mortuary temple covered with sand, Menkaure, which was already built for his son, was partly made of limestone and mud bricks (near the Muslim cemetery). Wonderful slate triads were found here depicting Menkaure with the goddess Hatlior and the deity of one of the Upper Egyptian nomes, and fragments of other statues The upper mortuary temple stands at the eastern wall of the pyramid. And it was expanded in the times of Shepseskaf. Here, too, a pink granite statue of Menkaure was found. The complex includes three satellite pyramids – one of them was probably an ordinary auxiliary pyramid. Situated more to the east, it probably belonged to Khamerernebta II, Menkaure's sister-wives. To the northwest of the ramp you can see the tomb of Queen Chenetkaus, Menkaure's son's wife, Shepseskaf, and after his death, the wife of the priest of the god Re and the mother of the rulers of Egypt in the fifth dynasty (Sahure, Neferirkare I).
