PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks.

 

The Step Pyramid Complex of Djoser was built during the Third Dynasty (2800 BC) in what is now Saqqara. Djoser’s Step Pyramid is generally considered the first tomb in Egypt to be built entirely of stone. Cairo, Egypt

 

The majority of the chapels on the west side of the Heb-Sed Court had round roofs and facades that were decorated with dummy columns.
