Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, Cairo

4.6
A World Heritage Site, Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids once provided the final resting place for the pharaohs and nobles of Memphis. The ensemble of pyramids and mastabas (tombs made of mud bricks) covers a huge area of the desert--this site was used as a burial ground for around 3,000 years. The main structures include the Pyramid of Djoser, constructed by the royal architect Imhotep--it's possibly the oldest intact stone building in the world.

  • Large pyramid feel the romance of history, was impressed. However, vendors often eel quasi national, will get tired. Tell me "1 dollar". Cheap and Kanji already a rip-off, but please note that is the price.

Very concerned the pyramid of teti still intact its interior colors
