The Khufu Valley Temple is a temple located near the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt. It is believed to have been built during the reign of the pharaoh Khufu, around 2550 BC, as part of the complex surrounding the Great Pyramid that included the Great Pyramid, Khufu Pyramid Temple, and Khufu Valley Temple. The temple was made of limestone and was situated on the east bank of the Nile River, on the same site of the Great Pyramid. The temple was relatively large, measuring around 105 meters long and 30 meters wide, and it was likely used for religious rituals and ceremonies in honor of the pharaoh Khufu.

The temple's entrance was on the east side, and it was decorated with reliefs depicting the pharaoh Khufu and various religious scenes. Inside the temple, there are several small rooms and chambers, including a small sanctuary where a statue of the pharaoh may have been placed. The temple also features a number of inscriptions and hieroglyphs, which provide valuable information about the history and significance of the pharaoh Khufu.

The temple was likely used for various religious rituals and ceremonies, many of which were associated with the god Horus and the pharaoh Khufu. The temple was used to provide offerings to the pharaoh and it was also used as a place of worship, where people would come to pray to the pharaoh and to the god Horus.

The temple was in the area of the modern day city of Giza that comes up to the Giza Plateau. In ancient times, it's likely that the banks of the Nile came up directly to the temple.
