Its amazing that this pyramid is only ten feet shorter than the great pyramid. To imagine that these structures were the Burj Khalifa or the Empire State Building of their time- and were the tallest structures for centuries. Wow.

Interesting and not a bad access to go inside, but nothing really to see but one empty sarcophagus. It's worth only if you want to say you enter the Pyramid.

Every pyramid deserves a visit- 40LE is well worth it! Also at site, it is a beautiful walk to the sphinx or into the Sahara...by horse or camel.

We were so impressed with the pyramids in general, but the extra cost of entering this one was not worth it. You walk, crouched over, through a passageway which terminates in the burial chamber to find nothing but an empty sarcophagus - no carvings, hieroglyphics,...More

This was the 1st pyramid I ever went inside, back in 1978. Went back this last trip to refresh my memory. Brighter inside than Khufu's Great Pyramid, due to the paler limestone. Surprised by how small the sarcophagus was, narrow and not very deep. Big...More
