There are new discoveries being made at this site every year. There are several active excavations underway. Recommend you do this site with a guide to better understand the history and layout.

I loved visit these pyramids. I went around dusk and there was hardly anyone here. It was a much better experience then visiting the "main pyramids".

Unlike the three Great Pyramids of Giza, this is a different style pyramid, called a Steppe Pyramid that was built as per the demand of the Pharaoh at the time. Definitely worth seeing and ticking off your list!
