To Passage to Queen's Chamber

Length: 5.7 meters
Width: 5.2 meters

Although it is called the 'Queen's Chamber,' Egyptologists believe this space was meant to be the final resting place for King Khufu, until he changed his mind yet again and opted for a burial chamber even higher. The roof of the chamber is raised at its center.
