Google launched a virtual tour of the Nubian pyramids

Google has added a new project as part of the Arts & Culture: A virtual tour of the Nubian pyramids in Sudan. Like the Egyptian ones, they served as burial places for the rulers of the ancient state of Kush, which existed until the 4th century AD.

The project is dedicated to the monuments of Meroe, the third capital of Kush, in which there are 50 pyramids at once from 6 to 30 meters in height. In the format of an interactive tour, the interior design of the pyramids and underground tombs is demonstrated. On some Android smartphones, you can also view a 3D model of King Arkamani I's pyramid, one of the best preserved.
