The mysterious pyramids of Egypt
The Egyptian pyramid of Djoser, better known as the step pyramid, is located in Saqqara, 30 km from Cairo. A visit to the pyramid is part of the Dashur-Sakkara tour. It is worth visiting this pyramid at least out of curiosity, because this is the very first pyramid built in honor of the ruler Djoser. The peculiarity of the pyramid is that it is made in a stepped form. Six steps is the path along which the pharaoh goes to the afterlife, according to historians. Inside the pyramid there are 11 burial chambers for the pharaoh and his family members. During the archaeological excavations, Djoser himself was not found, only the mummies of his relatives. This is due to the fact that by the time the excavations began, the tomb had already been plundered.
An excursion to Sakkara with a visit to the Djoser pyramid will cost about $ 80 per person.
