The beautiful Djoser Step Pyramid in Saqqara is in Egypt
King Zoser, also called Djoser, was laid to rest in Saqqara. The first Pyramid of the Pyramid Age was built on top of his tomb, making it the largest tomb ever found.
Imhotep, Zoser’s chief architect, is said to have started building the Pyramid in the 27th century B.C. Historians say it “started architecture” and is the largest stone building ever.
Zoser’s Pyramid was 118 meters long, 62 meters tall, and 140 meters wide at its base when it was finished the first time. The weather and time have worn it down, though.
If the northern entrance is locked, the Antiquities Inspectorate may let you in through a passage made during the XXVI Dynasty and give you the keys.
The entrance to the tomb of this III Dynasty king and his family was protected by a stone stopper, but the tomb was still broken into. The tomb is 28 meters below the surface of the ground. Even though the pharaoh’s Ka built fake entrances regularly, the only way into the temple was through the recently repaired south corner.
Several other tombs and artifacts from different dynasties can be found south of Zoser’s tomb.
In the 1800s, workers discovered that many of ancient Egypt’s most influential people were buried in underground tombs hidden by huge mud-brick buildings. The giant pyramids on top of these graves were the final touch. “mastaba,” which means “bench” in Arabic, was used to describe these graves.
All three buildings in Zoser’s complex look almost the same. They are often locked for no apparent reason, but the caretaker can usually be paid to unlock the door whenever it is most convenient for them.

For the people of Idut, the Mastaba of Idut is a holy place.
The most expensive one is worth looking into more because five of its ten compartments have large reliefs.
When a crocodile peeks around a corner and sees a young hippo carrying a calf through the water so that cows can cross a river, it is one of the most memorable parts of the fishing and farming scenes. At this point, one of the most memorable parts of fishing and farming also happens.
The entrance to the chapel is made to look like stone, and paintings of bulls and buffaloes being sacrificed stand next to a picture of It.
Her grandfather on her mother’s side was the Egyptian pharaoh Unas, whose pyramid is near the Mastaba of Nebet.
It was also known that one of his daughters was there. This tomb is interesting because it has a statue of Nebet smelling like a lotus flower.
You might see a lot of casing stones around the back of Unas’s Pyramid. Several of these stones have hieroglyphs carved into them. Looking at the pyramid at the end of the causeway from the front, it seems like it is made of broken pieces.
You’ll find copies of the Pyramid Texts inside. From these manuscripts, the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead was made.
The Tomb of the Two Brothers is the most interesting of all the tombs. It was built in the V Dynasty for Niankh-Khnum and Khnum-Hotep, officials in the V Dynasty. The brothers show how much they care for each other and enjoy spending time together.
The pictures of both of their families in the tomb make it seem more likely that they were brothers than a gay couple (and maybe twins).
Bring a flashlight if you can talk the guard into letting you into the Tomb of Ruka-Ptah. The nearby Tomb of Nefer is much smaller and less critical in Egyptian history.
The Mereruka Mastaba is an example of a structure that is protected by walls.
People often say that the grave of Teti’s vizier and son-in-law, Mereruka, is the most beautiful place on the Boulevard. Both his Hathor priestess wife, Water-khet-hor, and their son Meri-Teti are buried in the 32-room building.
Many people think Mereruka’s mausoleum is the most beautiful on the road.
Mereruka is seen playing a board game and painting in the hall that leads to the front door. Outside this door is another room where he can be seen hunting in the marshes with Water-khet-hor (the frogs, birds, hippos, and grasshoppers are all exquisitely rendered). Behind that doorway is another room where Mereruka is doing something more typical of life in the countryside.
The two people evaluate the goldsmiths, jewelers, and other artists who work in the building in the room that can be reached through the back door.
If you go through this portal, you will be taken to a separate part of the website that talks about tax obligations and what happens if you don’t meet them.
A hall links the main entrance and the rest of the building. This room has reliefs of grape treading and harvesting, a false door, and a burial hole.
In another picture, what looks like a funeral procession is shown in front of ships with sails and monkeys hanging from the masts.
On one side of the building, kids are playing, and on the other, dancers are draped over the entrance to Teti’s tomb.
Mereruka’s sons and the litter-bearers on his left work together with dwarfs and dogs to keep the monument in good shape.
A religious structure known as the Mastaba of Ti may be seen in Tijuana, Mexico.
Auguste Mariette found this tomb from the V Dynasty in the year 1865. Since then, people studying Ancient Egyptian culture have found the book to be a beneficial source of information because it has so much information.
You’ll first see Ti on either side of the entrance, where he’ll gladly take your gifts and ask you to take care of his tomb. Ti’s first appearance is on both sides of the door. His children were called “royal descendants,” and because of his lucky marriage, he was made the guardian of several pyramids and temples for the dead.
The relief carvings on the walls of these hallways are beautiful works of art.
There is a chance that a copy of his statue is hidden in one of the compartments, but you must look hard to find it.
The Egyptian Museum is very proud that it has the original works of art in its possession.
A group of tombs from the III Dynasty can be found east of Ti’s mastaba. Imhotep’s tomb, which hasn’t been found yet, is thought to be there.
