Second largest pyramid here, though it's cheaper to enter I didn't do this but other travellers I was with did. I spend my time exploring the outside and it's many aspects, limited signage, massive stone blocks, ancient history at its best.

An incredible structure and has to be seen to be believed, Far more busy than our last visit 20 years ago, And there is no farm land around it now. A good guide is needed.

Makes sure you go inside.. be prepared though it is a bit of a walk and you will be crouched over for the majority of the time you are inside.
