The necropolis at Saqqara
(Arabic: سقارة) is part of the World Heritage Site Nr. 68 "Memphis and its Necropolis – the Pyramid Fields from Giza to Dahshur", which contains also the pyramids of Giza, Abusir, and Dahshur.
On the left is the pyramid of Userkaf . In the center the
stepped pyramid of Djoser
, which is claimed (by
to be the oldest complete stone building complex known in history. On the right side, between two pyramids of Dahshur visible dusty in the background, there is the pyramid of Unas
. It is now ruined, and looks more like a small hill than a royal pyramid.
