King Djoser | King Zoser | Step Pyramid King



With the help of Imhotep, King Djoser erected a funerary complex at Ṣaqqara, outside the royal capital, Memphis (southwest of modern Cairo). 200 years preceding the three famous pyramids that people see first during the tour to Giza Pyramids.


Djoser (Netjerkhet). he is the second king of the third dynasty. Under his reign, Egypt consolidated its unity. Djoser's name was also found in a long inscription carved on a rock near Aswan as a testament to the unity of the two lands of Upper and Lower Egypt. Djoser reigned, according to Manetho, for 29 prosperous years.

He is considered by some to be the founder of the third ruling family during the old kingdom, but more recent lists put the pharaoh Sanakht before as his reign is really uncertain. However, King Djoser is certainly is very important, so much so that in the Royal Canon of Turin his name is written in red.

During the first years of his reign, Djoser transferred the government from Tanis to Memphis which became the capital of the two kingdoms and took the priestly power (the solar cult of Amun Ra became the cult of the king). Know more about ancient Egyptian religion and gods of ancient Egypt!

His Step Pyramid, built by the High Priest and architect Imhotep can be considered the oldest stone construction in the world. Imhotep would later become a true deity, also worshiped by the Greeks (such as Aesculapius) for his medical, architectural, philosophical, and religious knowledge.

With the help of Imhotep, King Djoser erected a funerary complex at Ṣaqqara, outside the royal capital, Memphis (southwest of modern Cairo). 200 years preceding the three famous pyramids that people see first during the tour to Giza Pyramids.
