The Pyramid of Djoser (Zoser), also known as the step pyramid, is an archeological remain in the Saqqara necropolis, which once served the ancient Egyptian capital Memphis.

This first Egyptian pyramid consisted of six mastabas (of decreasing size) built on top of each another. The pyramid originally stood 62m high, and had a base of 109 x 125m. The step pyramid was clad in polished white limestone and is considered to be one of the earliest large-scale stone constructions.
