Notes on the Geography of Egypt: Saqqara: Photo 1

world pictures Egypt: Saqqara

Well over 200 feet high, it rises in seven steps over an underground mastaba, a rectangular flat tomb whose form imitates a mud-brick house. Around the pyramid and within a 1.5-kilometer walled enclosure is a copy of the king's palace at Memphis, but the buildings are solid masonry, without internal rooms. Two are visible here on the left. They line the ceremonial court, and their form imitates tents of the kind used for celebrating the king's jubilee--here continuing for eternity.
