You have to visit the pyramids of Giza when you visit Cairo, but if you have time also visit the Djoser complex. There is so much more to see here. The complex gives you a better insight into why the pyramids were built and what they meant o the men building them.

Sits near the nice little restaurant where we had lunch but is basically in the middle of nowhere with nothing else around. Interesting to see but not worth driving very far out of the way to find it.

This pyramid is not as impressive as the Giza pyramids. However since this was the first to be built and a slightly different shape due to steps, one can take time out to visit. The tombs of the prin ess and nobleman are impressive. Colours preserved till date. However sad part is one cannot take photos here.

I was not really familiar with this pyramid before our trip to Egypt. I discovered that this was the very first pyramid ever built. The site is amazing and the history even more so!

Hurrah, they've moved a lot of the scaffolding, but I await the day when we can see it in it's natural, non-scaffolded state.

The complex is a wonderful place to visit. Read up before you go and see how the king would have celebrated the Sed Heb festival here. It brings it all to life. The columned entrance hall is a beautiful, cool and peaceful place.
