Excavations in front of the Sphinx temple proved the existence of a harbor connected with the pyramid of Khafre at Giza. Moreover, during the construction of an apartment buildings on the east side of Zaghloul Street a limestone basalt wall, 650m. south of Pyramids Road in Nazletel-Samman (where Zaghloul Street bends slightly northwest) was discovered. It is interpreted to be a part of the harbor of Khufu.

In previous archaeological research, an archaeological survey undertaken by G. Goyon showed the existence of ports close to pyramids dating to the Old Kingdom. East of the Sennel-Agouz at Giza, Goyon found an outer casing of limestone built in steps which were badly affected by water. He assumed that this was connected with the harbor of Khufu, thereby confirming earlier statements of scholars concerning harbors in front of the Old Kingdom valley temples. Recent excavations in front of the lower temple of Khafre revealed that a tunnel under ramps was built to preserve the water. Goyon also investigated the area around the Old Kingdom pyramids and found that harbors could be located in front of those of Menkaure, Unas and Pepy II, but no archaeological evidence confirms this hypothesis.
