Site in Upper Nubia, the successor to Kurru as the main royal pyramid cemetery of the Napatan kings of the mid-7th to early-3rd centuries BC. It is about 25 km southwest of the fourth Nile cataract and a few kilometers to the northeast of Napata (a principal political center of Kush/Cush). The largest pyramid, that of the king Taharqa (reigned 690-664 BC), is situated there. Royal burials continued to take place at Nuri until 315 BC.
