Bent Pyramid, Dahshur
Farther south of the White Pyramid is the imposing and enigmatic Bent Pyramid. Like the Red Pyramid, this was built in the reign of Sneferu, probably before that pyramid, and apparently planned as a normal pyramid with straight sides and with the usual valley temple, causeway, subsidiary pyramid and enclosure wall. It has a base measurement of 619ft/188.56m and a height of 319ft/97.26m.
Southern Brick Pyramid
To the east of the Bent Pyramid and some 1.5mi/2.5km south of the Black Pyramid, on the edge of the desert plateau near the village of Minshat Dahshur, is the Southern Brick Pyramid, which, like the Black Pyramid, was originally faced with slabs of Tura limestone. It is believed to have been built as the tomb of Amenemhet III (12th Dynasty; C. 1844-c. 1797), who irrigated and settled the Fayyum; but Amenemhet later built another pyramid at Hawara in the Fayyum and was buried there. Practically nothing is left of the valley temple of this pyramid, which seems to have been symstematically demolished in the Ramessid period.
On the south side of the Bent Pyramid is the so called Small Pyramid, which has a base measurement of 180ft/55m and originally stood 105ft/32m high. Presumably built as the tomb of Hetepheres, Sneferu's wife and mother of Cheops, it has an entrance, with a small cult niche, on the north side and an offering table on the east side.
