How many pyramids are there in Egypt?

Answer

There are over 100 pyramids in Egypt, and the majority are located around the city of Cairo, including the famous pyramids at Giza. One notable exception to this is the pyramid at Abydos in southern Egypt.

Pyramids were not built throughout Egypt's history. Their construction began with the third dynasty pharaoh Djoser. A number of the early pharaohs built more than one pyramid, and most rulers who followed added to this number. Pyramid building ended after the reign of the New Kingdom pharaoh Ahmose. Tombs after this period were hidden in the west bank of Thebes rather than marked with a pyramid.
