  • Photo Gallery: Meidum Pyramid

  • Situated south beyond Giza and Memphis stands the "Ruined" Pyramid at Meidum. Now attributed to Sneferu (2575 BC) it was originally planned as a step pyramid. Later it was transformed into a true pyramid but seems to have been abandoned perhaps before it was finished. Sneferu went on to build two more pyramids at Dashur, making him the most prolific builder of all the IV th Dynasty Pharaohs.
