Bent Pyramid of Old Kingdom Pharaoh Sneferu, Dahshur, Egypt

January 8th, 2006 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places

Located at the royal necropolis of Dahshur, approximately 40 kilometres south of Cairo, the Bent Pyramid of Old Kingdom Pharaoh Sneferu is a unique example of early pyramid development in Egypt.

The lower part of the pyramid rises from the desert at a 54 degree inclination, but the top section is built at the shallower angle of 43 degrees, lending the pyramid its very obvious "bent" appearance.
