Very interesting news from Egypt - the Lahun pyramid of Senwosret II has opened to visitors!

Yes..It is official!
H.E Prof. Dr. Khaled El Anany, The minister of Antiquities together with H.E Gen. Essam Saad, the Governor of Fayoum have opened the pyramid of Lahoun and its burial chamber for the first time since the end of 19th century. 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.
