Abu Rawash is a site in Lower Egypt, just 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) north of Giza. It is the location of the (possibly unfinished) Pyramid of Djedefre and may therefore be considered an unfinished Necropolis. However, the current archaeological consensus is that the pyramid was completed and about the same size as the Pyramid of Menkaure.[citation needed]

The Pharaoh Hor-Aha has been found mentioned at this site.[1]
