Interior of Pharaoh Djoser's Pyramid

Djoser's Pyramid - Step Pyramid & Complex - Saqqara - The Places

Pharaoh’s Burial Chamber
The Chamber had been robbed in antiquity, so little remained to be examined apart from its structure. It was made of granite and was sealed closed after Pharaoh’s death with a 3.5-ton block.

 

The Pyramid’s Labyrinth
Nearly 6km of chambers and corridors run underneath the Pyramid, making it a real labyrinth. These chambers mimicked the Royals Palace for their Afterlife and would have provided for the needs to the Pharaoh’s family members along with the 40,000 plus goods Pharaoh would need in the Afterlife and any offerings left there by the Pharaoh’s Royal Court.
