SAQQARA

Saqqara is some 40 km south of Cairo. Known as the City of the Dead, it is one of the richest archaeological sites in Egypt. It was developed as the royal necropolis for the Old Kingdom capital of Memphis, just to the west.

The centerpiece of the Saqqara necropolis is the Step Pyramid of Djoser, the prototype for all other pyramids.

To get closer to the pyramid, you have to pass through this gateway...

This remarkable structure was built for 3rd-dynasty King Djoser by his architect, the high priest Imhotep, in the 27th century BC. The pyramid marks an unprecedented leap forward in the history of world architecture.

The pyramid is currently undergoing extensive exterior conservation work.

The vast enclosure surrounding the step pyramid marked yet another major achievement. Bounded by a finely cut limestone wall originally 10.5 meters high, this complex included vast open courts, pavilions, shrines and chapels.

The Imhotep Museum and visitor's center (where you buy tickets), is the first stop before visitors go to the necropolis
