In size the step pyramids were big, but they were not as big as the pyramids. The step pyramids were 198 feet (60m) high from bottom base to the very top point. The base of the bottom block was 398 feet (121m) long. Going across it was 358 feet (109m). If you really think about it that is really really BIG!!!! The base could fit over 100,000 fat people on it. I am not trying to be rude but that is a lot of big people.
