The pyramids at Dashur, about 40 km (25 mi) south of Cairo. The gray-brown built-up area of the village of Dashur in the upper right is surrounded by the green agricultural land of the Nile Delta, which forms a distinct boundary with the tan desert to the west. It is in the desert that the monuments of the ancient rulers of Egypt are found.
