Meidum Pyramid

The Meidum Pyramid is also called Snefru Pyramid as it is belonging to Snefru, this pyramid was constructed at Sakkara, as it is situated in the southern side of Sakkara, and it was constructed by the last king who was called Huni in the third century, therefore this pyramid was built in the same shape of the Step Pyramid of Djoser and it has eight layers that were built above each other.

 

 

Moreover the Meidum Pyramid wasn’t completed by the king Huni, as he left the pyramid of Snefru unfinished, then the king Snefru decided to finish it, as he was the successor and he took the pyramid for himself, consequently it was thought that this pyramid was one of Snefru’s works.
