Dahshur. Egypt. Man standing in front of the Red Pyramid at Dahshur, the world’s first monument to have the prefect classical true pyramidal form. The third largest Pyramid in the world and named after the warm reddish hue of its weather-beaten limestone, the pyramid was built by King Sneferu (2613-2589), founder of the fourth dynasty and father of Cheops (Khufu) and predates the Giza pyramids. Memphis and its Necropolis and the Pyramid Fields from Giza to Dahshur are together a designated Unesco World Heritage Site.
