In the pyramid-studded lands of Sakkara, the underground world is as enchanting as the one above.

visit Sakkara

When it comes to the monumental sites of Egypt, Giza receives all the limelight. But from pyramid building to mummification, Egyptian funeral practices first flourished in Sakkara. Lying on the plains to the south of Cairo, the vast necropolis was the primary burial site of the ancient capital, Memphis. The treasures of the site so far include hundreds of funerary temples, mega tombs, and mummies. The mysteries of Egyptian history are yet to unravel in these sacred grounds. There, the most esteemed royalties of Ancient Egypt were put to rest over 4,000 years ago.

A trip to Sakkara immediately invokes the sense of ageless nobility that every visitor expects to find in an Egyptian burial site. It has numerous structures predating Giza. The Step Pyramid of Djoser is the earliest stone building in the region. In the temples and tombs, a rich portfolio of mural reliefs tells stories of long-lost everyday practices. There are also countless relics all across. They are the symbols of unimaginable wealth. 

Sakkara is an invaluable place of ancient history. It contains a relic or temple from every one of the dynastic periods. Among the oldest tombs in the country, the mystical afterlife of Ancient Egyptians breathes life once again on these lands. And, a collection of glorious royal treasures await. Explore it at your own pace to witness the marvels revealing themselves.
