There is the pyramid that was attributed to Khufu's successor and son. whose name is Djedefre . and who reigned from (2566-2558B.C) .
|Djedefre's Pyramid at Abu Rawash|
The pyramid is built in a curiously desolate and lonely site . It is located om a steep rock , more than 490' (150m) above the Nile Vally . A really difficult and inaccessible location .
Upon arriving to the site , one sees a pitiful heap of rubble.
What happened to Djedefre's Pyramid ?
We don't know if the pyramid was ever finished . If it was finished , it surly has not survived time .
The red granite , on its eastern face , suggests that the monument was at partially complete .
Even when or if it was complete ,it was much smaller than Khufu's Pyramid . Actually it is even smaller than the fist Pyramid of Zoser .
What is underneath ?
- There is the polar passage on it northern side .
- The descending passage is about 27' (8m) wide but not very high , just like the other previous pyramids. It is 157' (48) long .
- There is one empty room , at the bottom of a wide shaft .
- There is no inscription anywhere inside or outside the Pyramid .
