Pyramid of Sahure (I)

AWIB-ISAW: Pyramid of Sahure (I)

The pyramid of Sahure from the causeway that leads up to it. Sahure was the second king of the 5th Dynasty and the first to build his pyramid at Abu Sir. The pyramid is in such a ruined state after much of the stone that once adorned it was recycled for use in later pyramids. by Kyera Giannini (2009)
