Dashur is one of the most tranquil and awe-inspiring pyramid sites, with five pyramids dating from the Old and Middle Kingdoms—three of them are obvious, but only one can be entered. At this writing, the site is undergoing active restoration, supported by the Egyptian government, the United Nations Development Program, the World Trade Organization, and UNESCO.
