Pyramid of Meidum
It is a small uninscribed temple known locally as Qasr el-Sagha. The site can be reached via a track from Kom Ushim, and is about 25km from the main road, In remote antiquity a forest grew on the northern edge of the site - petrified remains can still be seen and it is thought that Birket Qarun once extended its northern shore close to the temple in the days when the lake was much larger. Qasr el-Sagha rests on a level platform on the side of the escarpment The date of the temple is a source of debate among scholars, but its plan suggests that the structure was built no later than the Middle Kingdom, The temple was never completed and the walls were left undecorated. The interior contains seven small chambers or shrines and an offering hall. There is also a 'blind room' which is completely enclosed and appears to have no entrance IWNTA - SIGHTSEEING - Visits near Cairo - Qasr Al- Sagha
