The Forgotten Pyramids Of Sudan [Travel]

The Forgotten Pyramids Of Sudan [Travel]

The Morning Call

The Nubian Meroe pyramids, much smaller but just as impressive as the famous Egyptian ones.

With more than 250 tombs, Sudan has more than twice the number of pyramids you’ll find in Egypt.

The pyramids get their name from the ancient city of Meroe, the capital of the Kingdom of Kush, an ancient African kingdom now known as the Republic of Sudan.

Time may have weathered them, but the legends of the kings and queens live on – and their wish for immortality will be if tourists continue to support travel to Sudan.

Have a look!
