Memphis and Saqqara

Memphis was the ancient capital of Egypt. The word Memphis is the Greek translation of Menuufer (meaning the good place) which was the pyramid of the King Pipi I at Saqqara. The importance of the area is demonstrated by its persistent tendency to be the Capital of Egypt, as Cairo just to the North is today.

Dashur Pyramids

Less frequent site than the Giza complex but not less interesting. Dashur hosts two of the most interesting pyramids of Egypt, the Bent and the Red Pyramids. The Bent pyramid is the fourth tallest Pyramid in Egypt with a height of 90 meters. The fact that it is bent makes it really special. It is believed that the engineers made a mistake with the main angle of the pyramid which made them stop half way and change it through the construction. The Red Pyramid is never less interesting, it is the third highest in Egypt with a height of 105 meters and believed to be the first proper pyramid to be built in Egypt built by King Senfru the father of King Khufu. It is also the only temple with Red stones at the entrance so named the red Pyramid
