This southern extension of the necropolis of Sakkara is a field of Royal tombs about 3.5km long, only opened to tourists in 1996. Several pyramids can be found there, including the famed “Bent Pyramid”. As one of the most unusual pyramids in Egypt, and also one of the best preserved as much of its casing remains, it has attracted considerable attention over the centuries. The Bent Pyramid actually underwent three different alterations away from the original plans, which called for the structure to have an angle of almost 60o. This was then changed to 55o, requiring that the base be enlarged. When the pyramid was about 45 meters high, the angle of the slope was again reduced to 45o. Later pyramids, like those at Giza, usually had a slope of between 52 and 53 degrees. Another of the three pyramids at Dahshour which were built by the Pharaoh Sneferu, father of Cheops (of the Great Pyramid at Giza), is the Red Pyramid. This monument gets its common name from the reddish limestone used to build most of its core, but it is also sometimes referred to as the Shining or Northern Pyramid. It is the fourth highest pyramid ever built in Egypt, with almost 160 layers of stone. Significantly, the Red Pyramid was the first successful, true, cased-Pyramid built in Egypt.
