Pyramid of Djoser

Redirected from Pyramid of Djzosèr

The Pyramid of Djoser was designed for the burial of Pharaoh Djoser by Vizier Imhotep. This early Egyptian pyramid is akin to a Sumerian Ziggurat, and consisted of 6 mastabas (of decreasing size) built atop one another. The pyramid was 60 m tall. The step pyramid (or proto-pyramid) is considered to be the earliest large-scale stone construction.
