The bent pyramid of pharaoh Sneferu. This rarely visited early pyramid shows how the ancient Egyptians perfected the pyramid shape. The story behind the "bend" is halfway throught construction the structure began to collapse under its own weight as initial angle was too steep. To preserve the whole project from destruction the ancients Egyptians reduced the angle of steepness in the pyramid and completed this bent pyramid that is still standing to this day.

MADE IT TO THE LAND OF 1000 THREAD COUNT SHEETS AND ANCIENT PYRAMIDS! 😁😁😁😀 This pyramid in Dashur is the only one constructed at two different gradients, and is the most well preserved pyramid in Egypt as it still has much of its original limestone casing. #bentpyramid #dashur #egypt #fuckyeah
