<font face='arial' size='3#' color='#23397D'>Pharoeh from the 3dr dinasty, most interested in 'RA' as the main concept among the gods, since 'Osiris' was more for the popular believes of the common people.

Zozer ordered to built this pyramid at Saqqarah, and according to historians, was the first pyramid in which at its top the God 'Ra' is represented. I was built by Imhotep about 3.000 B.C. Its high is 62.50 meters and its external structure is stone (granite)

The capital of Lower Egypot was Memphis and the structures were called 'Mastabas' in which noble people was buried, since the pharoehs were buried inside the pyramids.

Basically the mastabas were rectangles structures with only one access door to the first camara and then was connected to a second camara which was actually place the body of the pharoeh.<font face='arial' size='3#' color='#23397D'>
<font face='arial' size='3#' color='#23397D'>The egyptians were obsess with the life after death and their existance on the earth was just the first step to a new journey with their gods. That is why, the built such momuments.<font face='arial' size='3#' color='#23397D'>
