Many individuals are familiar with Meidum’s Pyramid.
The Meidum Pyramid may be found in the Fayoum Governorate. Constructed during the Old Kingdom’s 4th Dynasty.
Unlike the Giza pyramid, this pyramid is not the same.
Fayoum City to Cairo may be reached by automobile in slightly over an hour.
The Maidum Pyramid may have been erected by Snofru or Huni, depending on the evidence.
Dahshur’s crimson and curving pyramids, as well as the Meidum Pyramid, were erected by Snofru. Snofru also constructed the other pyramids.
After constructing Maidum in the form of a step pyramid, Snofru may have covered it with a shell. As a result of its shoddy construction, the enormous pyramid collapsed. That caused a lot of pressure to be applied externally rather than inside.
In Dahshur, Snofru attempted to construct a second pyramid, but he quickly abandoned the project (thus the Bent Pyramid).
The mastabas that originally adorned the pyramids have been demolished. Snofru’s son Rahot and his wife Nofret are depicted in the “Maidum Geese” frieze and a statue (both are now in the Cairo Museum).
A 47-meter-long tunnel and an improvised stairway lead to the Mastaba #17 burial chamber. Could there be another shaft that we overlooked?
