Hello MDaines:

The Giza Causeways’ solar relationship has recently been addressed here, and here.

Khufu’s Causeway terminus is centered on the Mortuary Temple’s eastern face:





The Causeway and boat pit/grave share parallel alignment with a specific sunrise date:





Had the Causeway’s boat pit/grave location been established foremost, the placement of Khufu’s Pyramid, Mortuary Temple and Causeway would have, of necessity, been established subsequent to that primary event; possible, not plausible. Chicken and egg…
