15/26.- Pyramids tour, Saqqara, Zoser pyramid


This is the first big pyramid. It was built during the 3rd dynasty, in the first dynastic period. Its architect, Imhotep, designed it to be the tomb of the pharaoh Zoser (2649-2575 BC). First the architect constructed the base, and in five further extensions it achieved the current 62 meters. The techniques developed to construct this pyramid made possible the construction of the bigger ones in Gizah.
