Most distinguished event the reign of pharaoh Djoser was no doubt the establishment of the new capital city of Memphis (Mennoferu), which replaced the Cenej (near Abydos). Djoser has made history and that he commissioned his vizier, Imhotep inventive, construction of the Step Pyramid at Saqqara.

Djoser took the good habits of their predecessors and continued in the first raids on Egyptian Nubia. Pharaoh, who ascended the throne after Zoser, we know almost nothing. These rulers were called Sekhemkhet, Chaba, Neferka and Huni.

    Abusir is an archaeological locality in Egypt named after nearby recent village Abusir. It is situated on western Nile bank on the edge of Libyan tableland approximately 20 kilometers to the south-west of Cairo. The name of this locality is derived from ancient Egypt god Osiris, from Per Usir (Busiris), "(cult) place of Osiris" (Busiris in Greek).
