The first step in building a pyramid was to choose a suitable site.This had to be on the west side of the Nile because the west was where the sun set and where the dead were thought to enter the underworld.The pyramids also needed to be situated on the high ground, away from the danger of flooding at the time of the Nile's inundation.
 

However, it could not be too far away from the bank because the river would be used to transport blocks of fine quality limestone for the outer casing from Tura, on the other side of the Nile.The site chosen would be at a point on the desert plateau that would proved a firm rock base capable of supporting  the great weigh of the pyramid without any risk of cracking .It would also need to be within easy reach of the capital, so that the king could go to inspect the building  work whenever he wished.
