Western Cemetery

Cemetery in Giza

Private cemeteries are tucked into the hill alongside the causeways, as well as arrayed in neat rows around the Pyramids in a grid pattern. Only a few of the tombs are open to the public at any given time. At the northern end of the Western Cemetery, the Tomb of Senegemib-Inti contains interesting inscriptions, including a rather vicious looking hippopotamus, rippling with muscle.
