Causeway of Unas

The Causeway of Unas (Unis)

The Causeway of Unas in Egypt

The causeway to the Pyramid of Unas (Unis) has been partially reconstructed. The causeway was originally enclosed entirely. It extends for about 700m toward the pyramid. The walls were inscribed with scenes of everyday life of the Egyptian. Almost all of the carvings in the pyramids and other monuments contain inscriptions and reliefs of royalty or noble life. The roof had a narrow slit to allow sunlight in to illuminate the inscriptions on the walls.
