Mastaba of Seshemnufer 4
The mastaba of Seshemnufer 4 is one of the most visited at Giza, lying on the way from the main ticket office to Khufu' pyramid. It is worth the time, as it consists of a number of rooms, a nice sanctuary and an underground burial chamber, which can be entered (picture below).
Unfortunately, the wall decorations are worn out since long. For colourful decorations, the other mastabas are better places to look.
Seshemnufer 4 was the inspector of the physicians at the Great Pyramids. He was not a contemporary of the pyramid builders, living some 150 years after the death of Menkaure and more than 200 years after Khufu. It appears likely that there must have been prominent mastabas around this place before, perhaps Seshemnufer had an earlier structure transformed into his own tomb?
