The Step Pyramid of King Djoser at Saqqara (Sakkara), Egypt

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

This is the end of my ‘tourist pictures’ from Egypt. :)

I’m not a historian nor an Egyptologist so it’s better you read more info here: Wikipedia 

There’s a massive renovation going on in Saqqara

Explore the Pyramids by National Geographic

  
The British Museum:
“The tomb of King Djoser (2630-2611 BC) at Saqqara, known as the Step Pyramid, was the first Egyptian pyramid tomb, and the earliest stone building of its size in the world. It was also the first royal tomb to receive some form of decoration.”

Tour Egypt:
“Below ground, the Egyptians created an underground structure on a scale previously unknown, quarrying out more than 5.7 kilometers (about 3 1/2 miles) of shafts, tunnels, chambers, galleries and magazines. A central corridor and two parallel ones extend over 365 meters (1,198 feet),  connecting 400 rooms. These and other subterranean features surround one of the most complicated tangles of tunnels and shafts the Egyptians ever created, below the pyramid itself.”
