The pyramids belongs to Djedefre who reigned at the fourth dynasty after king khufu. The king reigned for about 8 years in total. His pyramid is in a very ruined condition today. The pyramid itself has a massive 49m channel cut into the bedrock to a 20m deep shaft. Djedefre’s cartouche was found in the burial chamber and Because of that cartouche, we can say this pyramid belonged to him.
