On the east side of Dashur you cannot help but notice the pyramid of Amenemhet III known as the Black Pyramid because what is left of its mud brick interior is very dark.

We will visit with you the Bent or South Pyramid. It was the 1st pyramid in Egypt to begun as a true one. If the pyramid had been completed according to plans, it would have been the greatest in Egypt. The Red or North Pyramid is known due to the colour of limestone used in its construction.
