The Red Pyramid or the North Pyramid was the third pyramid built by Old Kingdom Pharaoh Sneferu, the father of Khufu, who built the Great Pyramid at Giza. It is the largest of the three major pyramids located at the Dahshur necropolis in Cairo, Egypt. Named for the rusty reddish hue of its red limestone stones, it is also the third largest Egyptian pyramid, after those of Khufu and Khafra at Giza. The Red Pyramid was to be first successful attempt to construct a true pyramid, Much less crowded than Giza and one more thing is that you can enter inside the pyramid. There are three Chambers inside the Pyramid. First two chambers are at ground level, while a third chamber is higher, built within the masonry of the pyramid itself.

Supposed to be the oldest pyramid. Red because of iron. Much less crowded than n Giza. No services yet you can go inside.

The oldest true pyramid the Red Pyramid in Ancient Egypt was known as Sneferu Gleams. Built at the beginning of the Forth Dynasty as a progression from the Bent pyramid located nearby. The Pyramid gets its current name from the red tinge of its limestone and the red markings left by the laborers who built the pyramid. Even on a cold winter's day, the Red Pyramid is an awesome sight. There were no peddlers or touts to be seen at this site. Probably due to the cold or the rain; there were very few people at all. The added advantage of having a military base close-by meant that the safety in this area was assured. Not usually on the tourist trail, the site does get a few visitors at the moment but will eventually get more in the future as ticket prices are lower than Giza.

Quiet when visited in early morning. Guards keen to let you wander more in chambers but eager for dollars. Must reflect on how poorly paid.
