The Step pyramid :

Egyptian Prime Minister Mustafa Madbouly and other officials were on hand this week as the Djoser Pyramid was reopened following its restoration.
The Saqqara necropolis, with its antiquities and tombs dating to the most ancient periods of Egyptian history, is an open-air museum. The necropolis also includes the Serpeum, where the Apis Bulls were buried.
The Djoser Pyramid, located near the city of Memphis, is the oldest large-scale stone building in the world.

The Step Pyramid is the highlight of Saqqara’s monuments. It’s the oldest monumental stone building in history and Egypt’s oldest pyramid. It was commissioned by Djoser (c.2648-2667 BC), the second king of the Third Dynasty.

Stone blocks that had loosened were restored, and gaps between the blocks were filled with the same material that had been used in the construction of the pyramid.
