Almost the same as it appears today with one major exception. Inthe 1800s a large earthquake cracked the outer casing stone layerso that the Muslim leaders of the time took and removed the outerlayer of the pyramids to build their fortresses and buildings inCairo and Alexandria. Therefore, if you were to look back in timebefore the great earthquake you would have seen three smooth-sidedpyramids. Today only the second tallest pyramid (Kahfre) still hassome cover stones at its top. The local elders also say that whenthese stones were on the pyramids, that there was some writing onthem as well.
