This pyramid complex is recently open for public eyes, and it's already a hit. Few interesting details hide here. We can see curved pyramid as well as red pyramid of pharaoh Sneferu (Cheops father) who build three pyramids, becoming the pharaoh who moved most stones

Not to be missed if you have the time. Visitors to Dahshur can climb down into the tomb deep inside the pyramid which is a real treat (not for the elderly, claustrophobic or those out of shape). Surprisingly empty of tourists when we went.
