Menkaure is known as the smallest pyramid in Giza and is built from white limestone and red granite. It is easily recognizable for the traces of dismantling attempts on its north side. These attempts were initiated by Saladin's son and lasted for more than eight months. Luckily, the pyramid endured easily.
The pyramid is currently closed to public.
