Unique Pyramids Found In Sudan

The country with the most known pyramids is not Egypt or Mexico, but Sudan, which during the last few years has extended its margin over its competitors.  Between 2009 and 2012, at least 35 pyramids, ranging in width from 30 inches to 22 feet, have been found in the Sudanese site of Sedeinga.  These pyramids were built about 2000 years ago by inhabitants of the kingdom of Kush, and have the same general shape as the Egyptian pyramids, after which they were modeled.  Some of the Sedeinga pyramids include an inner circular cupola structure connected by cross-bracing to its four corners.  Only one pyramid of this design has ever been discovered at any other site.
