Discover Saqqarah Egypt

From Memphis to Giza via Saqqara, the entire region is covered with tombs, mastabas, pyramids and temples, some of which have not yet been excavated.

Saqqara consists of a huge area of religious and funerary monuments covering a period ranging from the 27th century BC to the 10th century AD. A royal necropolis under the Ancient Empire, Saqqara was increasingly abandoned during the Middle Kingdom of Egypt, with the pharaoh and his court being in Thebes and then in Fayoum.

The plateau is dominated by the step pyramid of Djoser, the oldest stone monument in the world. The pyramid itself is the result of a complex evolution.
