The Pyramid of Djoser is the oldest Pyramid in Egypt, which was built about 4,700 years ago.
Located at Saqqara Egypt, northwest of the city of Memphis, the 6-tier, 4-sided structure is the earliest colossal stone building in Egypt. It was under maintenance on the day I visited but nothing really distract its raw beauty.
Djoser’s Step Pyramid complex included several structures pivotal to its function in both life and the afterlife. A pyramid was not simply a grave in ancient Egypt. Its purpose was to facilitate a successful afterlife for the king so that he could be eternally reborn.
