Pyramid of Pepi II

Image 1
Main pyramids of southern Saqqara were built by kings of the 5th and 6th dynasties. These include pyramids of Pepi I, Pepi II and Merenre.

The pyramids were built in the same way: the main pyramid with an attached secondary pyramid within a funerary complex and a similar complex of the queen -which in turn has a pyramid, funerary temple and a secondary pyramid-.

The pyramids are generally in a very bad state of preservation.
