The concept he applied was completely different than what his predecessors used in those days in the making of the pyramids. He wanted to build a doom not from mud or bricks but from stones. To build the first pyramid the king chose a place named “Saqqara.”The recruits or laborers in the making of pyramid were compensated with basic needs of food, clothing, and shelter. A group of 20 laborers were assigned for each division of pyramid. Nearly 10,000 laborers were recruited to build this huge complex. In 2659 BC the Egyptians were on the work of world’s biggest stone Mega structure. A massive doom complex for the Pharaoh King D. Joser. The man behind this great architecture was king D. Joser’s right hand “Inhoteb”. He was the person to bring the system in place to cut, construct and transport the stones for the massive building block of these pyramids. The stones were carried to the construction site using nothing but ropes, sleds, muscle and sweat.

Then he enclosed the casing of doom with a polished lime stones giving the structure smooth sides. In an attempt to avoid structural problems to the pyramid, king Snefru’s engineers pursued a more gradual angle of the inclination in one of the pyramids. And he also strengthened the foundation by using large blocks and superior foundation.
