Information
Dahshur is a relatively isolated place south of Giza by 35 KM. though the two pyramids here are impressive built between 2613–2589 BC. The Bent Pyramid is 90 meters tall and is the fourth tallest pyramid in Egypt. It was built by Senefru, father of Cheops (the builder of the Great Pyramid). The Bent Pyramid is one of the first pyramids built. The reason that this pyramid is bent is because the initial angle proved too steep, and the engineers had to change it midway through construction. The Red Pyramid was built by Senefru and is 105 meters tall. It is the third tallest pyramid in Egypt, after the Cheops and Chefren pyramids in Giza. The Red Pyramid is considered to be the first true pyramid and is made of sandstone. The entrance is made of red stones.
