Saqqara Pyramid This pyramid was one of the earliest attempts of making a pyramid. This pyramid was conducted by the son of Ramesses II. Saqqara is also the location of the incomeplete step pyramid of Djozer’s successor Sekhemkhet which is also known as the buried pyramid. Archeologists say if this pyramid was completed then it would be larger than Djozer’s.
