The Giza Plateau is situated on the
west side of Cairo city. There are 11 pyramids in all including the Great
Pyramid of Khufu, visible in the background. This view is from the desert
2.5km south of the plateau. Cairo is visible in the background. The city is
beginning to engulf the pyramids and in due course the pyramids may find themselves
in the middle of a great city. In the foreground are the secondary pyramids
of Menkaure. Followed in the rear by the the pyramids of Khafre and Khufu.
In the far background to the right are the 4 secondary pyramids of Khufu.
