Then you will go to witness the Complex of Saqqara
which belongs to King Zoser and his step pyramid which is considered the first pyramid in Egypt and the first rock-cut building in the history.
After that heading to Dahshur
. The pyramid field of Dahshur
lies about 10 km south of Saqqara
. The pyramids here include the famed Bent and Red Pyramids built by the 4th Dynasty king Senefru (father of Khufu, builder of the Great Pyramid). The Bent pyramid is the second funerary monument of King Senefru's Complex after Meidum Pyramid
.the reason of its shape it was originally designed to rise at the angle of 52°, this was decreased to 43.5° partway up, and a girdle was built around the base, apparently because the foundations were unstable and the angle too steep for safety. The Red Pyramid, Seneferu's third funerary monument, is the first successful true (straight-sided) pyramid ever built. It's called the red because of the reddish color of the stones used in its construction.
