Meidum Pyramid is located 85 km (52 miles) to the south of Giza. Although the Pyramid is a unique site and a worthwhile visit, unfortunately, similar to the site of Dahshur, it is one of Egypt's forgotten sites, and it is rarely visited.Upon leaving your hotel with your own guide, it takes 90 minutes to get to Meidum. The Pyramid is called the collaped because from a distance, it looks like a huge tower surrounded by a pile of rubble. The pyramid was 93m high when it was first built
King Huni, (2637–2613 BC), the last king of the 3rd Dynasty, built the Pyramid of Meidum in the style of a step pyramid. When it was newly constructed, it featured 8 steps, one built right on top of the other. The steps later filled in and an outer casing added to form the first try of a true pyramid.
It seems that King Huni had left his Pyramid unfinished, and his successor, King Snefru, finished the great task for him, therefore latter generations thought it was the work of Snefru. Sneferu’s architects then went on to build the more successful Bent Pyramid and Red Pyramid at Dahshur. This will be your next stop after covering the whole area of Meidum.
Next stop will be at Dahshour, this archeological site is five miles away from Sakkara. There are three pyramids in this untrodden place: the Bent pyramid, the North or Red pyramid. Both belong to the pharaoh Snefru, the founder of the 4th dynasty while the third pyramid belongs to his wife Queen Hotep Heres.
In this place, you will visit the Bent pyramid, which was the first try to develop the shape of the Step pyramids. This pyramid looks fascinating with its two-level form and its beautiful soft casing layer. Move around this pyramid and have a look at the small pyramid of the queen.
Then, stop at the Red or North pyramid. This one is the first true and complete pyramid in ancient Egypt. You will be told the development of the royal tomb structure in the Old Kingdom. You can enter the chamber of this pyramid, which is quite an experience to go through the narrow tunnel to the chamber.
