The Step Pyramid was built by Djoser (2668-2649 BC) the last pharaoh of the 5th-Dynasty, and designed by Imhotep.  It is part of the Saqqara complex.  The design incorporates a series of mastabas placed on top of one another.  This was the first time that stone was used instead of brick.  The Jubilee Chapels were used to celebrate Djoser's 30th anniversary of coming to power.  The Pyramid of Unis (2356-2323 BC), 5th-Dynasty, was the first pyramid to have its galleries decorated.  The Pyramid of Userkaf (2498-2491 BC), founder of the 5th Dynasty, is known as the "ruined pyramid" because of its poor condition.
