All Cities - Meidum

Snefru's first pyramid attempt
The collapsed pyramid at Meidum may be the first true pyramid in the world; its contender is the the Bent Pyramid at Dahshur. The pyramid was a refined Mastaba, where the steps of the step pyramid were evened out. The few step pyramids of Ancient Egypt apparently suggested an even greater shape; the dramatic simplicity of the non-stepped pyramid.
