DAHSHUR
The Bent pyramid's satellite

Satellite pyramid of the Bent Pyramid at Dahshur, Egypt


Satellite pyramid of the Bent Pyramid at Dahshur, Egypt

Remains of two stelas on the eastern side of the satellite pyramid.


The satellite pyramid of the Bent Pyramid rose 32 metres high, but thanks to height of 105 metres of the Bent one, it appears very small. The purpose of a satellite pyramid was to shelter the ka of the pharaoh. The ka was the life force of the deceased, and continued to live in this world.
