Nubian Pyramids

So far, more than 35 pyramids grouped in five sites were discovered in Sudan. The area of the Nile valley known as Nubia , which lies within the north of present day Sudan, was home to three Kushite kingdoms during antiquity.

Nubian Pyramid are pyramids that were built by the rulers of the ancient Kushite kingdoms to serve as tombs.

The physical proportions of Nubian pyramids differ markedly from the Egyptian edifices: they are built of stepped courses of horizontally positioned stone blocks and range approximately 6–30 metres (20–98 ft) in height, but rise from fairly small foundation footprints, resulting in tall, narrow structures inclined at approximately 70°. Our Nubian Pyramids incline at approximately 72 degrees.
