This is the only pyramid of the middle kingdom which is opened for the public.
Don't miss the chance and visit Lahoun Pyramid and its exquisite, red granite burial chamber. The pyramid was construted 4000 years ago to be the resting place for King Sneusert II soul. Built of mud brick, the Pyramid's entrance is a vertical shaft under a princess's tomb located about a dozen yards off to the east of the southern pyramid side. Interestingly, this was made to ward off grave robbers.
