The earliest known Egyptian pyramids are usually  found t Saqqara, northwest of Memphis. One of the earliest among these is the pyramid of djoser which was built during the third dynasty. The pyramid and it's surroundings complex were designed by the architect Imhotep, and are generally considered to be the world's oldest monumental structures constructed of dressed masonry.

Built during a time when Egypt was on of the  most richest and most powerfulest civilizations in the whole world, the pyramids - especially the great pyramids of Giza - are some of the most magnificent man-made structures in history.

In the valley of Egypt, there are three large pyramids: The Great Pyramids of Khufu, the Pyramid of Kafhre, and the Pyramids of Menkaura.
