At Saqqara, the oldest complete stone building complex known in history was built: Djoser”s step pyramid, built during the Third Dynasty. Another 16 Egyptian kings built pyramids at Saqqara, which are now in various states of preservation or dilapidation. High officials added private funeral monuments to this necropolis during the entire pharaonic period. It remained an important complex for non-royal burials and cult ceremonies for more than 3,000 years, well into Ptolemaic and Roman times.

It is amazing that the pyramid built about 4,700 years ago required 330,400 cubic metres of stone and clay. The knowledge gained from its construction lead to the development of the famous pyramids at Giza.

Perhaps, this is one of the oldest monuments in the world!
