In Egypt destroyed the world’s oldest pyramid of Djoser at Saqqara. The Committee for tourism and antiquities of the Union of revolutionary youth of Egypt intends to apply to UNESCO with a request for help, and willing to submit to the Prosecutor General of the country report on the violations and corruption committed during the restoration of the step pyramid.

As ITAR-TASS, the reason for concern was what happened a few weeks ago an incident in one of the interior chambers of the pyramid collapsed stones. According to experts, the first known pyramid is under threat of full collapse, and if time does not intervene, humanity may lose a unique monument of antiquity.

“The monument, which are part of the heritage of humanity, is crumbling before our eyes, said glauconite Omar al-hadari. — Made during the restoration of flagrant violations only worsened the situation, and an appeal to UNESCO will be our next step after the submission of the report to the Prosecutor General, if the situation with the preservation of the unique complex will not change”.

Meanwhile, the Director of the Saqqara complex Kamal Wahid denied the fact of a partial collapse of the Djoser pyramid from the inside, accusing local media in the transmission of untrue facts. “The only problem is now most acute is the lack of funding from the Ministry of antiquities, he noted. All affect the course of the restoration, but, even so, restoration work at Saqqara was not stopped”.

The step pyramid of third dynasty Pharaoh Djoser, whose height reaches 60 meters, which was erected in the year 2630 BC. It is the oldest stone building in the world. According to ancient Egyptian sources, from the tomb of Djoser built by architect Imhotep, began the construction of the pyramids. The styles and forms used in the erection of this monument, served as a model for imitation and further development of the stone construction not only in Ancient Egypt but also in other regions of the ancient world.

In 2006, restoration work started construction, but over the past six years, according to archaeologists, so nothing really done and was not.
