The pyramid complexes are known as the Layer Pyramid built in the third dynasty, and another ruined structure, called the Northern Pyramid built in the fourth dynasty. This second complex has not been extensively explored or excavated.
This photograph was taken in 1905. I have never come across this site before.
Look at the size of those megalithic blocks and what is that altar thing? Has anyone here been to this site?
