Saqqara: The Step Pyramids (Cairo)

The Saqqara Steps Pyramid, one of a traditionally building attributed to the Pharaoh Khafre.

As have promised to deliver all the photos taken from my Egypt trip, here are they. I know it’s a bit or very very late to do this, but still there are people out there that would like to see how great Egypt is. Photos had been prepared for long time, but only been post them on today for many reasons. Anyway… …

The Saqqara Steps Pyramid, one of a traditionally building attributed to the Pharaoh Khafre. As usual, ancient buildings in Egypt are mostly built near the Nile River. It is an absolute wonder of engineering to build such a huge building and its distinctive architectural style totally identifies it as being among the oldest stone buildings in Egypt. The steps pyramids were built before the Giza pyramid, which means older than the most known pyramid of Giza today. the whole place used to be, 8km long and 1km wide. The great necropolis reconstructed in its entirety.

Now, there are not much left to be see anymore, but still very beautiful thing I ever seen because most of the important structures are still existing. It is big, and it’s memorable.
