The Red Pyramid of king Senefru is considered to be the first true pyramid in history that is recognized for the reddish dusty color of its local stones, then you will also see the Bent Pyramid which has leaning sides due to a mistake in the portions of the construction, but this incident was the reason why the pyramids look unique of its kind and the only pyramid that still retains most of the white outer casing.
