Pyramid at Abu Sir


Tour Egypt reader John Hawes submitted this beautiful scene of a pyramid at Abu Sir. Abu Sir has been called the site of the forgotten kings of the 5th Dynasty. Despite the size of their monuments, these kings do not have the fame of their predecessors from the 4th Dynasty. The site was closed for many years to visitors, but is now open to the public.
