Lisht or el-Lisht is the site of Middle Kingdom royal and elite burials, including two pyramids built by Amenemhat I and Senusret I. The pyramid complex of Senusret I is the best preserved from this period.

The two main pyramids were surrounded by smaller pyramids of members of the royal family, and several hundred mastaba tombs of high officials and their family members. They were constructed throughout the Twelfth and Thirteenth Dynasties. The site is also known for the tomb of Senebtisi, found undisturbed and from which a set of jewelry has been recovered.
