A pyramid was a three-dimensional structure composed of four or five sides composed of (usually) triangular shapes.
The great pyramids of Egypt of Earth were built as grand tombs for the pharaohs. They dated back to the times of the Old Kingdom and Middle Kingdom. (PROSE: A History of Humankind) These pyramids, such as the Great Pyramid of Giza, (TV: The Daleks' Master Plan et al) were well known to other races.
One splinter of Scaroth claimed to have caused the pyramids to be built, (TV: City of Death) though the Doctor was sceptical of this claim. (PROSE: A History of Humankind) The Osirans also influenced the building of the pyramids, and other pyramids were definitely constructed by 'aliens'. (TV: Pyramids of Mars, PROSE: Dead Romance) Osiran war missiles were pyramid-shaped and used "pyramid power". (TV: Pyramids of Mars)
The Rings of Akhaten also had a pyramid, a holy site for the Sun-singers of Akhet, seven planets orbiting the same star, all of them sharing the belief that life in the universe originated on that pyramid. In it was a mummy. (TV: The Rings of Akhaten)

The Great Intelligence used a three-sided pyramid constructed from Yeti control spheres as its physical form, though it truly had no physical form, (TV: The Abominable Snowmen) and it used such a geometry for a machine able to absorb the Doctor's mind. (TV: The Web of Fear)
