This is the chamber where King Khufu was ultimately buried. Unfortunately, all
that remains in this sacred space is the king's sarcophagus made of large
blocks of red granite. Khufu's body, along with his earthly possessions, were
looted before archaeologists arrived. Some of the colossal ceiling stones for
the King's Chamber weigh as much as 9 tons. This chamber, which lies 95 meters
below the apex of the pyramid, is a remarkable space in which to stand and some
visitors come from points far and near to meditate here.
