Pyramid of Sahure

Sahure (2490-2477 BCE) built his mortuary complex at Abusir near the Temple of the Sun. He was the first to make use of the palmiform columns in architecture which would become standard for columns throughout Egypt from then on (the well-known columns whose tops are shaped like palm fronds).
