The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. This is the story of disturbing questions and their unbelievable answers, a story that questions the history of our planet.
A Pyramid is a monumental structure with a square or triangular base and sloping sides that meet in a point at the top. These pyramids also gave us the ancient signs of modern technology. The Great Pyramid in Egypt is located at the exact center of the Earth’s land mass. It’s East-West axis passes through Africa, Asia, and America corresponding to the longest land parallel across the Earth.
Built more than 4,500 years ago, during Egypt’s 4th Dynasty of pharaohs, the pyramids at Giza are some of the most celebrated man-made monuments in history. Yet no one really knows how these magnificent ancient structures were built, on such a massive scale, in a relatively short period of time. Did you know that the Great Pyramid of Giza weighs 6.5 million tons? That’s Massive !! There are two entrance ways into the Great Pyramid. The original entrance is 55 feet above the ground and off center. The second was created by Arab soldiers who spent three months carving their way through the rock. This is known as the forced entrance.
The mystery of building pyramid leaves us speechless. The largest of the three pyramids at Giza, known as the Great Pyramid, is truly an astonishing work of engineering. It was built over a twenty year period. According to the beliefs, the great pyramid was built and architected by Hemiunu (Floruit 2570 BC), Khufu (Khnum-Khufu) who was the second pharaoh of the 4th dynasty and Imhotep who was an Egyptian polymath and who also served under the Third Dynasty king Djoser as chancellor to the pharaoh and high priest of the sun god(boring history!!).
KHUFU (2589–2566 BC)
Pharaoh Khufu is also called Cheops which is his name in Greek. His full name was Khnum-Khufu which translates to “Khnum protect me”. Khnum was one of the earliest Egyptian gods. He was the son of Snefru (first king of the 4th dynasty). In building the Great Pyramid at Giza, Khufu demonstrated his power and wealth. This massive structure took decades to build and involved thousands of laborers. His nephew Hemiunu was appointed the head of construction for the Great Pyramid. Khufu was the first pharaoh to build a pyramid at Giza. The sheer scale of this monument stands as the testament to his skills in commanding the material and human resources of his country.
HEMIUNU (Floruit 2570 BC)
Hemiunu was one of the most important persons of the old kingdom. He was a son of Prince Nefermaat and his wife Itet.
He was a nephew of Khufu. Hemiunu had high administrative positions and was overseer of constructions. He was who supervised the construction of Khufu’s Great Pyramid. He is said to have lived until the 19th year of the reign of Kheops. Hemiunu was buried in the western cemetery of Giza where was found his impressive, life-size statue (1.55m high). The statue represents Hemiunu, seated on a block throne, his right hand decisively clenched, his left hand resting on his knee.
IMHOTEP (2650–2600 BC)
Imhotep means The One Who Comes in Peace. Imhotep was the chief architect to the Egyptian pharaoh Djoser (reigned c.2630 – c.2611 BC). He was responsible for the world’s first known monumental stone building, the Step Pyramid at Sakkara and is the first architect we know by name. A commoner by birth, Imhotep’s intelligence, and determination enabled him to rise through the ranks to become one of Djoser’s most trusted advisors, as well as the architect of the pharaoh’s tomb, the Step Pyramid. Imhotep also served as chancellor to the pharaoh and high priest of the sun god Ra at Heliopolis. He was said to be a son of Ptah, his mother being a mortal named Khredu-ankh. Imhotep is also credited as the founder of Egyptian medicine and as the author of the Edwin Smith papyrus, in which more than 90 anatomical terms and 48 injuries are described. The Edwin Smith Papyrus was probably written around 1700 BC but may perhaps go back to texts written around 1000 years earlier.
Building the Impossible in Giza
The pyramids of Giza were built using techniques that took centuries to develop. It is believed the great pyramid was built with the labor of about 20’000 to 25’000 men or more, over the course of 20 years or so. The Great Pyramid is also amazing from a materials standpoint.
The pyramid measures 756 by 756 feet at the base and is 481 feet tall. It is made up of more than 2 million blocks weighing on the order of 3 tons each.
In addition to the many unresolved arguments about the construction techniques, there have been disagreements as to the kind of workforce used. The Greeks, many years after the event, believed that the pyramids must have been built by slave labor. Archaeologists now believe that the Great Pyramid of Giza (at least) was built by tens of thousands of skilled workers who camped near the pyramids and worked for a salary but who knows the truth.
INTERIOR OF PYRAMID OF GIZA
The interior of Khufu pyramid contains a descending passageway off of the forced entrance leads to the lowest chamber, also known as the subterranean chamber. This chamber is 79 feet below ground. The ascending passageway which is connected to the descending passageway opens into the Grand Gallery.
The Grand Gallery stands 161 feet long and 49 feet high. The King’s chamber is located on the top of Grand Gallery. The Queen’s chamber can be accessed through the Grand Gallery. Weight-relieving chambers were present above the King’s Chamber to distribute the weight of the pyramid away from the King’s Chamber. Air shafts exist in King’s chamber to help Khufu’s soul reach the afterlife. The Air shaft of Queen’s chamber was blocked by the stone.
The King’s Chamber
The King’s Chamber was the king’s final resting place. The King’s Chamber measures 10.45 meters by 5.20 meters, and is 5.80 meters high and is made entirely of pink granite. It had to be built to resist an enormous amount of pressure from the masonry above it.
The use of granite in this chamber and it’s superstructure is thought to reflect that material’s protective strength, but religious symbolism might also have been a factor. The granite beams in the superstructure were designed to vibrate in harmony with Earth resonance and transmit low-frequency vibrations to the chamber below. It is a great feat of architecture as it’s flat roof (composed of nine huge granite blocks) supports over four hundred tons of masonry. In order to achieve this, the builders constructed five relieving chambers. In the four thousand years since their creation, only one small crack has developed in the ceiling slabs near the south wall.
Within the chamber lies a red granite sarcophagus (a stone coffin, typically adorned with a sculpture or inscription and associated with the ancient civilizations of Egypt). It is very large with an estimated weight of about 3.75 tons, so it was probably placed in the chamber during construction. It follows the form of early dynastic sarcophagi.
However, the sides of the coffers are not well finished. The cover of the sarcophagus is missing, as is the king’s mummy. Some have suggested that it was a substitute sarcophagus, hastily prepared when the original was damaged, but there is no evidence to support this, and it doesn’t explain why it is unfinished.
The Assistance of Extraterrestrial beings
The theory that Aliens from another world have assisted in building the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt might explain how some of the most amazing and mysterious engineering feats in human history were accomplished. Moving massive stone blocks, apparently quarried from many miles away, and assembling them into something so colossal and precise seems like an insurmountable task even today. How did people manage it so many thousands of years ago without the use of modern construction techniques? How can one build that massive structure without having access to advanced technology and also with such perfect mathematical alignment ?
No cameras were around thousands of years ago when the ancient Egyptians built the pyramid of Giza and this raises the question that how these towering monuments were constructed?
SOME PIECE OF EVIDENCE :
- The Sphinx of Giza is a symbol that has represented the essence of Egypt for thousands of years. The Great Sphinx is a large human-headed lion that was carved from a mound of natural rock. The weird thing about the Sphinx is the sun tracing around the Sphinx’s head. In reality, the sun rises exactly at the left side of the base of the Sphinx’s head than it traces it all the way around until it sets on the right side of the Sphinx’s head. This can’t be the coincidence as this happens only on the day of the winter solstice (shortest day of the year) and for knowing that day one should know the exact length of the year.
- Beneath the Temple of Hathor at Dendera, there is a crypt with walls inscribed with some very strange beliefs. There are inscriptions depicting a bulb-like object which some have suggested is reminiscent of a “Crookes tube” (an early light bulb). Inside the “bulbs” a snake forms a wavy line from a lotus flower (the socket of the bulb). A “wire” leads to a small box on which the air god is kneeling. How did the Egyptians get the idea of Electricity at that many years ago?
- The ancient Egyptian temple at Abydos contains all the tremendous amount of evidence that we need. The ancient art on the walls contain depictions of flying aircraft, helicopters, and spacecraft (UFO). Don’t you think that how could people 2-3,000 years ago possibly have known about modern-day aircraft and spacecraft? No human of any time period can see the future, the only possibility is that the future was with the humans of that time. As we all know the Extraterrestrial beings are the future.
- The great pyramid is exactly lined up with the magnetic North Pole, a difference of less than one degree. This is not the coincidence. How could the Egyptians possibly have built their pyramid facing the exact magnetic North Pole without even having a compass? As the compass was not even invented for a thousand years after the ancient Egyptians.

Still a long journey for “modern” Science to trace the past.
