The pyramid of Pepi I mortuary temple

This part of the complex has not been fully excavated yet. However the general plan can be made out. The temple is in a much ruined state. But blocks of granite with the names of Pepi I can be found in the area. Also some beautifully carved limestone blocks, some with the colors still intact are also to be seen.
