The Pyramid of Niuserre
'Niuserre is the most stable of sites'
Places of Niuserre are enduring'
Niuserre, the 6th king of the 5th dynasty ruled for
more than 30 years. He built his pyramid in the area between that of Sahure
and Neferirkare. It is in a much ruined state but the stepped inner structure
is quite visible. Although there is evidence that the pyramid was sheathed
in fine white Tura limestone as shown by some blocks found scattered around
the pyramid. An interesting feature of the pyramid are the two 'Pylon' found
at the entrance to the pyramid temple.
