The Valley Temple of king Chephren
The Valley Temple of Chephren is part of a legendary land where once the biggest Kings and Pharaohs of Egypt chose to build their burial temples. Many remains have been found in the Valley Temple that mentions the names of Hathor and Bubastis, and also Khafre. Statues of Khafre were discovered in the temple in the 1860s. Who built the Valley Temple of Chephren ? Valley Temple of Chephren Giza is attributed to King Chephren , one of the kings of the 4th Dynasty.
TEMPLE DESIGNThe mortuary temple of Chephren was made in an organized way and it was comprised of an entrance hall, an open courtyard with some large pillars, five niches off the second chamber of the temple where probably the statues of the Pharaoh were placed, five storerooms behind these five niches and finally an innermost sanctuary that contained a pair of stelae or upright rocks with written inscriptions on them and a false door through which the dead Pharaoh was believed to enter from the burial chamber to collect the offerings given to him. The front side of this temple was made of large limestone blocks, which were covered by a layer of finer limestone. The roofs of the entrance hall and the second rectangular hall were supported by thick and sturdy pillars. There were supposedly 12 statues of Khafre in the courtyard, some of whom might be seized by the kings of the later dynasties. Five boat pits are found before this mortuary temple, dug out of the rock-base, which contained the boats that brought the mortal remains of the Pharaoh to preserve as a mummy in the pyramid.
