The pyramid, more precisely the mausoleum, is located near the town of Karaganda, often called by miles in the middle of nothing, and archaeologists believe that it is older than the Egyptian pyramids long believed to be the first
It was long considered that the first pyramids were built in Egypt, but archeologists discovered the pyramid of Egyptian style in Kazakhstan that is believed to have been built up to 1,000 years before the pyramid in Egypt.
Archaeologist Victor Novozhenov called this the “sensational discovery” of the Saryakinsky archaeological institute in Kardandi.
The 3,000-year-old pyramid or mausoleum is located in the Sary-Arka steps near the Karaganda city, and looks very similar to the Djoser pyramids, more precisely, the great structure built for Pharaoh Djoser in Egypt, according to Yahoo News .
“Judging by the way it was built, the mausoleum was built more than 3,000 years ago for a local king,” Novozhenov said. “This week we will go in and see. Everything we find will be sent to the Karaganda archaeological museum.”
Archaeologists have discovered this building in 2015, but they have just announced this today.
