The Pyramid of Midum

The Pyramid of Midum was the first building Sneferu built after ascending the throne in Egypt.

He chose a place to build close to his residence, Geddi Sneferu, which is now near Midum, and that area was not previously reserved for royal tombs.

Ancient Egyptian engineers chose the area on the grounds that it was a rocky plateau that could withstand the pyramid that would originate on it,

and be close to the capital. Construction began in the way that was known at the time in the way the runway pyramid was built;

modifications were made such as building the mummy chamber inside the pyramid rather than building it underground.
