The pyramids in the southern cemetery are the oldest in Begrawiya. I have not been able to find much written about them, but we decided to go there first, as last time we ignored them. Looking across the wadi to the Northern Cemetery there is a wonderful view of the pyramids there, so slogging across the sand and up the outlier was well worth doing.
At least one of the Pyramids has had reconstruction done to it.

Address: Begrawiya, beyond Shendi,.
