The Pyramid of Chefren (Khafre) has been reopened, as Egypt tries to revive its tourism industry, badly hit by last year’s uprising.
This pyramid is the second largest at Giza. It rises to a height of 136m and holds the tomb of the Pharaoh Khafre from the ancient Egypt’s fourth dynasty.
Along with the pyramid, Antiquities Minister Muhammad Ibrahim reopened six ancient tombs at Giza after a long restoration project.
He said his aim was to emphasize that Egypt is a safe country for tourists.
Following last year’s revolution, many people from the West avoid visiting Egypt as they picture the country as something like a war zone.
After inspecting the newly opened monument, Mr Ibrahim said that in the coming months other archaeological sites were due to be opened across the country.
Last year the unrest in the country led to President Hosni Mubarak resigning.
But scenes of violent protests, mainly in the capital Cairo, were broadcast around the world.
Egypt is currently suffering from a weak economy and a security situation which is still fragile.
