#3 of 177 in Things to do in Giza
A World Heritage Site, Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids once provided the final resting place for the pharaohs and nobles of Memphis. The ensemble of pyramids and mastabas (tombs made of mud bricks) covers a huge area of the desert--this site was used as a burial ground for around 3,000 years. The main structures include the Pyramid of Djoser, constructed by the royal architect Imhotep--it's possibly the oldest intact stone building in the world.

  • Restoration work has been carried out for many years and the Djoser Pyramid is surrounded by scaffolding. These have disappeared and they shine in old splendour. Also impressive: all tombs from the time of the New Kingdom are open.
