    Let's go to Saqqara and visit the world's oldest monumental masonry structure? the first pyramid ever built in Egypt. Step Pyramid in Saqqara is dominating the horizon of the area and is a part of a mortuary complex for the 3rd Dynasty king Djoser.

    The Pyramid rises in six unequal stages to a height of 60 meters (appr) and is the first and oldest ancient Egyptian pyramid, although not a "true" one with smooth sides.

    The blue faience-tiles of KIng Djoser's symbolic palace were found deep under the pyramid. Deep beneath the pyramid of King Djoser is a series of chambers and corridors representing the royal palace. The limestone walls here were ornamented with delicate tiles of blue and blue-green faience, inlaid in stone panels to imitate mats made of bound reeds. Part of this chamber is on display at Imhotep Museum in Saqqara.
