Our tour includes visit to one of the best preserved pyramids in the necropolis - The Bent Pyramid. It owes its name to its singular shape: almost half way up the face the angle of the slope passes from 50*40’ to 43*. The Bent Pyramid is King Senefru’s second attempt to build a complete smooth-sided pyramid. Archaeologists believe that the Bent Pyramid is a transitional form between the step-sided pyramid of king Djoser in the Saqqara Necropolis and smooth-sided pyramid, such as Senefru’s Red Pyramid in the Dahshur Necropolis and those of the Giza plateau.
The bent pyramid is a unique example of early pyramid development in Egypt.
