ABU- Rawash, located in the continuation of Gebel el-Ghigiga. The archaeological area of Abu Rowash, which belongs to the very northern part of the necropolis at Memphis, joins various sites together which date back to the Early Dynastic period, to the Coptic period.
ABU-SIR, an archaeological locality on the western bank of the Nile River, approximately 25kilometers (15 miles) southwest of Cairo. It is a part of the necropolis of ancient Memphis consisting of several pyramids of the fifth Dynasty.
The Meidum Pyramid lies at the western bank of the Nile River; 65 kilometers south of Cairo. A step Mastaba and a royal cemetery were constructed there from the transitional years of the third to fourth dynasty.
The first ‘true’ pyramid to be constructed was the Step Pyramid of King Djoser. It was built from many stone mastabas (steps) placed on top of one another. The famous architect and surgeon, Imhotep, was the mastermind behind its construction. The entire funerary complex consisted of the pyramid, the temple used for worship as well as many buildings built to show the king’s absolute power.
Do you know how Egypt pyramids were built? 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.
