सामान्यतया धेरैजसो पुरातत्वविदहरु के मान्छन् भने, यिनीहरुको निर्माण राजकिय, सौर्य र ज्योतिष चलनहरु सँग सम्बन्धित अन्त्येष्ठी (लाश गाढ्ने) स्मारकहरुको रुपमा गरिएको हो। र धेरैजसोको निर्माण [[मिश्रको पुरानो अधिराज्य|पुरानो]] र [[मिश्रको मध्य अधिराज्य|मध्य अधिराज्य]] को समयमा गरिएको हो।
[[मिश्र]]का पिरामिडहरुको आकारले घामबाट खसिरहेका किरणहरुलाई जनाउने विश्वाश गरिन्छ। धेरैजसोलाई अत्यन्त टल्किने सेतो चुनठुङ्गाले लेपिएको थियो जसका कारण टाढाबाट हेर्दा चम्किलो देखिन्थ्यो। अक्सर पिरामिडहरुको नामाकरण पनि सूर्यको चमकलाई जनाउनेगरी गरिन्थ्यो। उदाहरणको लागि: [[दशुर]]को [[ढल्केको पिरामिड]]को औपचारिक नाम ''दक्षिणको चम्किलो पिरामिड'' थियो, र अल-लहुनको सेन्वोस्रेतको नाम ''सेन्वोस्रेत चम्किरहेछ'' थियो।
By the time of the early Dynastic period of Egyptian history, those with sufficient means were buried मा visually unremarkable bench-like structures known as [[Mastaba|mastabas]]. The first historically documented pyramid is attributed to the architect [[Imhotep]], who मा constructing a tomb for the pharaoh [[Djozer]], first conceived the notion of stacking a number of mastabas on top of each other
The most prolific pyramid-building phase coincided with the greatest degree of absolutist [[Pharaoh|pharaonic]] rule, during the early part of the Old Kingdom. Over time, as the exercise of pharaonic authority became less centralised र more bureaucratised, the ability र willingness to harness the resources required for construction on a massive scale was reduced, र later pyramids were smaller, less well built र often hastily constructed.
Long after the end of Egypt's own pyramid-building period, a burst of pyramid-building occurred मा what is present-day [[Sudan]]), after much of Egypt came under the rule of the Kings of [[Napata]]. Whilst Napatan rule was brief र ceased मा 661 BC, the Egyptian influence had made an indelible impression, र during the later Sudanese Kingdom of [[Meroe]] (approximately मा the period between 300
The techniques used to construct Egypt's pyramids were initially developed by trial र error, र then further evolved based on local economic, resource र other considerations, over the thousand year pyramid-building phase of Egyptian civilization.
During the earliest period, मा the Third र Fourth Dynasties, pyramids were constructed wholly of stone. Granite (quarried मा [[Aswan]] र transported downstream by barge) was usually the material of choice for the main body of these pyramids, while limestone was used as the outer casing. In early pyramids, the courses of stone forming the pyramid body were laid sloping inwards; however, this configuration was shown to be less stable than simply stacking horizontal courses on top of each other. The [[Bent Pyramid]] at [[Dashur]] represents the transition between these two building techniques; its lower section is built of sloping courses, while मा its upper section the stones are laid horizontally.
During the Fifth Dynasty the physical scale of pyramids was much reduced, र poor quality limestone replaced granite as the chief building material. Infilling with loose rubble was also used for the first time. This enabled pyramids to be built with fewer resources over much shorter periods.
Paradoxically, the materials र methods of construction used मा the earliest pyramids have ensured their survival मा a generally much better state of preservation than is the case with the pyramid monuments of later pharaohs.
हाल मिश्रमा बिभिन्न आकारका लगभग ९०वटा पिरामिडहरु संरक्षणका बिभिन्न अबस्थमा रहेका छन्। धेरैजसोलाई पिरामिड-मैदानहरुमा समुहगत गरिएको छ। त्यस मध्येका महत्वपुर्णहरु: (उत्तर देखि दक्षिण, स्थानको क्रममा)
== अबु रबास ==
अबु रबास is the site of Egypt's most northerly pyramid
Unfortunately its location adjacent to a major crossroads made it an easy source of stone, र quarrying
== गिजा ==
[[गिजा]], on the southern outskirts of [[Cairo]] is the location of the [[Pyramid of Khufu]] (also known as the "Great Pyramid" र the "Pyramid of Cheops"), the somewhat smaller Pyramid of [[Khafre]] (or Kephren), र the relatively modest-sized Pyramid of [[Menkaure]] (or Mykerinus), along with a number of smaller satellite edifices, known as "queens" pyramids, र the [[Sphinx]].
Of the three, only Khafre's pyramid retains part of its original polished limestone casing, towards its apex. Interestingly this pyramid appears larger than the adjacent Khufu pyramid by virtue of its more elevated location, र the steeper angle of inclination of its construction
The गिजा necropolis has arguably been the world's most popular tourist destination since antiquity, र was popularised मा Hellenistic times when the Great Pyramid was listed by [[Antipater of Sidon]] as one of the [[Seven Wonders of the World]]. Today it is the only one of the ancient Wonders still मा existence.
== जावेत एल-आर्यन ==
This site, half way between गिजा र अबु सर, is the location for two unfinished Old Kingdom pyramids. The northern structure's owner is believed to be the Pharaoh [[Nebka]], whilst the southern structure is attributed to the Third Dynasty Pharaoh [[Khaba]], also known as [[Hudjefa]], successor to [[Sekhemket]]). Khaba's four-year tenure as pharaoh more than likely explains the similar premature truncation of उनका step pyramid. Today it is approximately twenty metres मा height; had it been completed it is likely to have exceeded forty.
== अबु सर ==
There are a total of seven pyramids at this site, which served as the main royal necropolis during the Fifth Dynasty. The quality of construction of the Abu Sir pyramids is inferior to those of the Fourth Dynasty
The three major pyramids are those of [[Niuserre]] (which is also the most intact), [[Nferirkare]] र [[Sahure]]. The site is also home to the incomplete Pyramid of [[Neferefre]]. All of the major pyramids at Abu Sir were built as step pyramids, although the largest of them
== सक्कारा ==
Major pyramids at [[सक्कारा]] include the [[Pyramid of Djozer|Step Pyramid of Djozer]]
== दसुर ==
[[दसुर]] is arguably the most important pyramid field मा Egypt वाहिर Giza र Saqqara, although until recently the site was inaccessible due to its location within a military base, र hence was virtually unknown वाहिर archaeological circles.
The southern Pyramid of [[Sneferu]], commonly known as the [[Bent Pyramid]] is believed to be the first (or by some accounts, second) attempt at creating a pyramid with smooth sides. In this it was only a partial
The northern, or [[Red Pyramid]] built at the same location by Sneferu was later successfully completed as the world's first true smooth-sided pyramid. Despite its relative obscurity, the Red Pyramid is actually the third largest pyramid मा Egypt
== लिष्ठ ==
Two major pyramids are known to have been built at Lisht
== मेइदुन ==
The pyramid at [[मेइदुन]] is one of three constructed during the reign of [[Sneferu]], र is believed by some to have been commenced by that pharaoh's father र predecessor, [[Huni]]. Some archaelogists also suggest that the Meidun pyramid may have been the first unsuccessful attempt at the construction of a "true" or smooth-sided pyramid.
The pyramid suffered a catastrophic collapse मा antiquity, र today only the central parts of its stepped inner core remain standing, giving it an odd tower-like appearance that is unique among Egyptian pyramids. The hill that the pyramid sits atop is not a natural landscape feature
It has been suggested that the collapse occurred while construction was underway on the [[Bent Pyramid]] at Dashur (also built by Sneferu), र that this may have been one of the reasons for the design changes implemented during construction of the latter edifice.
== हवार्रा ==
[[Amenemhet III]] was the last powerful ruler of the 12th Dynasty, र the pyramid he built at Hawarra, near Faiyum, is believed to post-date the so-called "Black Pyramid" built by the same ruler at [[दसुर]]. It is the Hawarra pyramid that is believed to have been Amenemhet's final resting place.
In common with all Middle Kingdom pyramids it was built almost entirely of mud brick faced with limestone. Most of the stone was later pillaged for use मा other buildings
The huge mortuary temple that originally stood adjacent to this pyramid is believed to have formed the basis of the [[labyrinth]] mentioned by such ancient historians as [[Herodotus]], [[Strabo]] र [[Diodorus Siculus]], र which is said to have been the model for the labyrinth built by [[Daedalus]] for King [[Minos]] of [[Crete]] to house the [[Minotaur]].
== अल लहुन ==
The pyramid of [[Senwosret II]] at Il Lahun is the southernmost pyramid structure मा Egypt. Its builders reduced the amount work necessary to construct it by ingeneously using as its foundation र core a 12 metre high natural limestone hill.
