by viddra

The 6 steps of the pyramid of King Djoser were originally covered with smooth and polished white limestone from the quarries of Tura (near Cairo). The casing was later stolen.
In front of the pyramid, there was a court for the ritual 'running' of the pharaoh during the jubilee festival, in his afterlife.
