Sun rise occurs due to the properties of light and the geometry of the Solar disk when the altitude of the sun is around 50 minutes of a degree below the horizon.

The altitude of the sun is thus -0.833.. degrees.

The azimuth of Menkαure's causeway is not 90 degrees. It does not perfectly target true East. According to "The Orientations of the Giza pyramids and associated structures" by Erin Nell and Clive Ruggles the azimuth is:

–0° 50'

This means that the Menkaure causeway was designed so as to show us geometrically where the Sun optically rises in regards to a horizon with no scenery obstructing our view.

Based on measurements found in the same article, the Khafre causeway orientation is not 14 degrees South of East. It is near 13.5 degrees South of East.
