It started with a small hole that turned into an underground room and then into several rooms topped by a bench. After that, it evolved to take the form of the pyramid included by the engineer Imhotep, the minister of pharaoh, and King Djoser in the third family.This was followed by two attempts by King Snefru, the founder of the Fourth Dynasty, to build a complete hierarchical form. But the back of the two pyramids is not sound. They are located in Dahshur, one flattened at the base and the other in a smaller shape, approximately half the size of the first.
