Behind this horse is the Pyramid of Khafre. It is the second largest of the three famous pyramids at the Giza Necroplis near Cairo, Egypt. This is the tomb of Khafre. The pharaoh died in 2532 BC. Over the millenniums, many of the limestone casing stones were stolen. This vandalism gives it the distinctive, mini-pyramid appearance towards the 448 foot peak. Horses and camels are a frequent sight around the area. The former is used for work, transportation and some tours. The latter are primarily reserved for tourist rides and photo ops.
