Pyramid of Neferirkare Pyramid of Neferirkare

Neferirkare is a 5th dynasty pharaoh. His pyramid at Abu Sir is the highest.

It was perhaps planned to be a step-pyramid like that of Djoser's pyramid but crumbled down to be just a big artificial pile.

Like other pyramids, this one was also cased with limestone one day.
