Egypt Pyramid

Userkaf, the first king of the fifth dynasty, built his Egyptian pyramids all around the northeast corner of Djoser, but his successors left Saqqara for Abousir. The return to Saqqara was initiated by Menkahouker, but the pharaoh's Egyptian pyramids have not yet been found. The pyramid's successor, Menkahouker Isési, was built south of Saqqara.
The Pyramid of Unas, the last king of Egypt's Fifth Dynasty, is located near the corner wall to the west of the Djoser-Galle Pyramid. The walls of the pyramid's internal passages are covered with so-called Egyptian pyramid scripts, spells to help dead pharaohs in the afterlife. These mantras should be recited at funerals. The Pyramid of Unas in Egypt was the first to contain mantras, a practice that was widespread among the pyramids of the Old Kingdom.

Ancient Egypt facts


The Egyptian pyramid Téti, the founder of the Sixth Dynasty, is the most royal pyramid in the north of Saqqara. The other pharaohs of the dynasty, Pepi I and Merenlei Pepi II, chose southern Saqqara.
The small brick pyramids of the little-known Eighth Dynasty pharaohs are located in the same area as the pyramids of Teti in Egypt. The two southernmost pyramids at Saqqara both belonged to the Thirteenth Dynasty. They are constructed of dry bricks, a feature of many period models. One is owned by Khendjer, while the other remains anonymous.
