The entrance of the great pyramid is in the northern side and this give him the trait of being under the protection of the polar star which isnít away from the northern horizon. King khofo is lying in his tomb believing that this star gives enternality and continuity to the soul of the king as well as the balsam of the pure north.
This entrance is about 15m high from its base and up on it there are some ancient writing and marks.
This entrance had been closed forever after giving the outer side of the pyramid a garment of stones. This entrance leads to a pathway about 1m height and of the same wide. If you go into this pathway for about 20m you will find a well leading to the under ground and then to along path way till you find a room under the pyramid this room had been built to be the design of this pyramid had change twice.
By the end of this way we find a huge block of the red gerante which prevents anyone from entering the pyramid. Here a step starts (This step has recently been built) and leads you to a narrow pathway (which also has a wooden step) over which you walk slowly till you arrive at a big lounge. If you looked at its surrounding walls you would find that they are consisting from seven layers made from a stones each one allows the appearance of the others be neath it. In front of you, you will find a square open which will lead you to queenís chamber. It is about 6m long and 5m wide. Its roof has the shape of pyramid and on its eastern wall there is a gap for air. From the big lounge you will find away leads to upstairs of 1m wide. This step leads to kingís chamber then you will walk along a very narrow path till you arrive at the room of burial which is 43.38m above the earth. Itís made from gerante with a roof of 16m, 5m wide and 110m long. This room contains a grave box made from granite without cover. The room has two gaps for air. Above kingís chamber there are five other rooms rather smaller to lighten the pressure of building of the burial rooms. The upper one has an edged-pyramid. The walls of the other tree room have some writing and carving written in hieroglyphs, which are really the name of the king.
