ABU-SIR, an archaeological locality on the western bank of the Nile River, approximately 25kilometers (15 miles) southwest of Cairo. It is a part of the necropolis of ancient Memphis consisting of several pyramids of the fifth Dynasty.
The Meidum Pyramid lies at the western bank of the Nile River; 65 kilometers south of Cairo. A step Mastaba and a royal cemetery were constructed there from the transitional years of the third to fourth dynasty.
The first ‘true’ pyramid to be constructed was the Step Pyramid of King Djoser. It was built from many stone mastabas (steps) placed on top of one another. The famous architect and surgeon, Imhotep, was the mastermind behind its construction. The entire funerary complex consisted of the pyramid, the temple used for worship as well as many buildings built to show the king’s absolute power.

Both the South Mazghuna Pyramid and the North Pyramid are attributed, solely on the grounds of a few bits of structural and archeological evidence, to Queen Sobekneferu.
Despite the fact that this is the first pyramid complex to break with a long tradition that started with the reign of Snofru, it is very badly documented and almost no research was done there. This leaves us with a very crude map, which is very likely incomplete and inaccurate.
