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.

Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids reviews
the BEST of the BEST , she is fabulous and knows everything about history and Egypt !!!! You will learn about the culture, the tradition, the people and much moore!!!! more »
Djoser’s Step Pyramid at Saqqara is one of the most important archeological sites in all of Egypt. While it may not be as impressive or as famous as the Giza Pyramids, this structure predates them. more »
Just incredible.. Smaller than the great pyramid, but no less impressive... Definitely worth a trip outside of Cairo!
Having tea with the caretaker at the Step Pyramid of Djoser in 1982 looking towards the great pyramids in the background . There was nothing there at the time and I took a horse across the sand to get to it as there was no road. Definitely a step back in time.
