Bent pyramid of Sneferu

Bent pyramid of Sneferu


Dahshur, Egypt (EG)
For unknown reasons 4th dynasty pharaoh Sneferu had three pyramids, this one 101 meters high. It is called bent pyramid because the inclination of the walls changes from 54 to 43 degrees in the upper part. This is likely the one where Sneferu was buried.
