    EGYPT: November-December 2013.
    Dashur. Valley Temple of the Bent Pyramid of Senefru.


    The Bent Pyramid is perhaps one of the first pyramid complex with a Valley Temple. Here we see features that later differentiate  between those of later Mortuary temples and Valley temples. An unroofed causeway with walls of Tura limestone ran from the upper pyramid complex. The Valley Temple was excavated in 1951.

In 1894-1895 the Pyramid was studied by the French archaeologists Jacques de Morgan and George Legrain.
