Bent Dahshur pyramid
Private tour in Cairo
Tour Price : $110 Duration : 3 hours Languages: english and arabic
Egypt is primarily associated with the ancient pyramids, and most of the tourists visiting the country concentrate on exploring the Great Pyramid of Giza. Nevertheless, there are other places that aren’t any less fascinating than the famous Giza Necropolis, which are certainly worth visiting. One of such sites is the Dashur Necropolis, located several dozen miles outside Cairo, which was the burial territory near the ancient capital Memphis. It poses a great interest to both researchers and tourists alike, and with the help of your Egypt private guide discovering this site can be really fascinating.
We’ll set out to the Dashur Necropolis in the morning and first visit its most known pyramids. The two pyramids built during the reign of king Sneferu, the father of Khufu, are the oldest structures of its kind and represent very peculiar sites. The Bent Pyramid was constructed around 4600 years ago and features a unique structure that cannot be seen in any other pyramid on the planet. It is believed to be the result of an engineering flaw that the pyramid has such a strange shape. The Red Pyramid, built shortly after, on the other hand is the first true manmade pyramid structure in the world and is much larger than its predecessor. There are also several deteriorated and ruined pyramids, the most notable of them being the so-called Black Pyramid, which was another regularly shaped pyramid, which has corrupted with time due to the materials used and engineering flaws. The area of the Necropolis also houses several temples, and sites where many untouched royal tombs have been discovered, some of which we’ll also visit during the tour.
Make sure to book this fascinating excursion if you have a full day in Cairo, since it delivers a great opportunity to touch upon the fascinating mysteries of the past.
