Located Around 15 Km from Saqqara, Dahshur Pyramids were an extremely important learning experience for the Egyptians. It provided them with the knowledge and know-how to transition from step-sided pyramids to smooth-sided pyramids.
The first of the Dahshur pyramids was the Bent Pyramid which built under the rule of King Sneferu and it was the first attempt at building a smooth sided pyramid, but proved to be an unsuccessful build due to the miscalculations made on the structural weight that was being placed onto the soft ground (sand, gravel, and clay), which had a tendency to subside. Other calculations that were proven to be erroneous were that the blocks being used were cut in such a manner that when placed onto the pyramid their weight was not distributed appropriately, causing the angle of the pyramid to be off and achieving the name "the Bent Pyramid".
Realizing his shortcomings and learning from his mistakes, King Sneferu ordered the building of the second pyramid of Dahshur, the Red Pyramid. Once completed, the pyramid was considered to be a success, as it was a fully constructed, smooth sided, and a free standing pyramid rising to a height of 341 feet (104 meters), with an angle of 43 degrees. The Red Pyramid’s name reigns from the material that was used to construct the pyramid, red limestone. This pyramid is believed to be the resting place of King Sneferu.

The Giza pyramid complex, includes the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Pyramid of Khafre, and the Pyramid of Menkaure, along with their associated pyramid complexes and the Great Sphinx of Giza. All were built during the Fourth Dynasty of the Old Kingdom of Ancient Egypt.
The Great Pyramid of Giza, the oldest and largest of the pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex, It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact, it was built as a tomb for the Fourth Dynasty Egyptian pharaoh Khufu Initially standing at 146.5 metres (481 feet) and over time, most of the smooth white limestone casing was removed, which lowered the pyramid's height to the present 138.5 metres (454.4 ft). What is seen today is the underlying core structure. The base was measured to be about 230.3 metres (755.6 ft) square, giving a volume of roughly 2.6 million cubic metres (92 million cubic feet), which includes an internal hillock.
The Pyramid of Khafre, is the second-tallest and second-largest of the 3 Ancient Egyptian Pyramids of Giza and the tomb of the Fourth-Dynasty pharaoh Khafre (Chefren), The pyramid has a base length of 215.5 m (706 ft) and rises up to a height of 136.4 metres (448 ft) It is made of limestone blocks weighing more than 2 tons each. The slope of the pyramid rises at a 53° 13' angle, steeper than its neighbor, the Pyramid of Khufu, which has an angle of 51°50'24". Khafre's pyramid sits on bedrock 10 m (33 ft) higher than Khufu's pyramid, which makes it appear to be taller.
The Pyramid of Menkaure, is the smallest of the three main Pyramids of Giza It is have been built to serve as the tomb of the Fourth Dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Menkaure, it had an original height of 65.5 meters (215 ft), and was the smallest of the three major pyramids at the Giza Necropolis.
