Introduction to PYRAMIDS


Pyramid of Teti, Saqqara, Egypt

Queen pyramid located in the mortuary temple area of the Pyramid of Teti.


Teti was the first pharaoh of the 6th Dynasty and ruled for 23 years, from 2345 until 2323 BCE.
The Pyramid of Teti is quite interesting in the fact that it was built as a step pyramid, after the Zoser principle, but covered in limestone, so that it appeared as a true pyramid. But everything that could be removed, has since long been removed.
