The Bent Pyramid at Dashur.

The Bent Pyramid owes its modern-day name to the fact that the upper half of this pyramid was built at a lower angle than the bottom part, giving it a very characteristic bend. The Ancient Egyptian name for this pyramid was ‘The Southern Shining One’, a reference to the fact that it was built at the southern edge of Dashur.
It is also the first pyramid that was built by Snofru at Dashur, after he probably had built the Pyramid at Meidum.
