Photographer's Note

Saqqara Necropolis served as the cemetery of the ancient city of Memphis nearby. The stepped pyramid of Djoser (Zoser) was built in 2648 BC. It was off limits for many years in the latter 20th and early 21st centuries due to a nearby military base. Even today, all visitors are required to register at the front gate with their name, nationality and hotel name. It looks like some repair work is underway. The summit is a modest 62 metres.
