Pyramid of Neferirkare Kakai

Pyramid of Neferirkare Kakai is the second pyramid to be built at the necropolis site of Abusir, south of the Giza plateau, in Egypt. The pyramid of Neferirkare is the tallest of all pyramids constructed in Ancient Egypt during its Fifth Dynasty.

Although incomplete at the time of pharaoh Neferirkare Kakai's death, the pyramid nevertheless reached a height of 70 metres in its original state, and even now stands some 50 metres high, despite significant deterioration in its external structure.
