The Great Pyramid has been standing for thousands of years and is the most intact structure of the remaining seven wonders of the ancient world. For more than three millennia, this sacred pyramid was the tallest structure in the world created by human hands. At 147 meters in height with side bases averaging 230 meters, it still holds the honors as being the largest pyramid on earth. Here, one can experience a sense of rejuvenation and rebirth that falls into alignment with their own divine nature. Secrets of the great wisdom keepers of cosmic knowledge are believed to be revealed to the most mindful pilgrims here who are willing to listen.
This Illusive Construction of the Pyramid
While it’s known that it was built for Khufo (Cheops), there are several theories about the Great Pyramid’s construction. Methods ranging from alien assistance and levitation methods to levers and pulleys to concepts of the use of inner passages and even sliding sands. Furthermore, scholars still disagree about how many stones there actually are, the type of materials they’re constructed from, and labor methods utilized.
The predominant theory concerning the number of stones is that there are around 2.3 million blocks weighing 2.5 tons each. Others with modern theories argue that there are just over 592,000 stones according to their calculations, and this is a mystery that may never be solved. However, what scientists have proven is that not all of the Great Pyramid’s stones are solid limestone, but rather a hand-cast mix of concrete and limestone—which would certainly lighten the construction load.
Who exactly really built it is still questionable, especially with new evidence and research being investigated today. It’s still a popular belief that slaves were used to construct the pyramid, but excavated skeletons suggest that these workers were native Egyptian laborers instead. Surely, many were simply believers and followers of the king and volunteered for the job.
Is the Great Pyramid a Tomb?
Many argue today that the pyramids were never intended to serve as tombs for kings, queens, or pharaohs, as there are very few tombs discovered with any grave goods or mummies. This is likely to due grave robbing from ancient to present times. However, there really isn’t much evidence that the Great Pyramid ever was intended to serve as Khufu’s place of respite.
If it was, it would be the sole time that a burial chamber was constructed directly above a pyramid’s entrance. The granite King’s Chamber where his body would have lied is near the top of the Grand Gallery where three massive granite monoliths create a door to seal the chamber. There is an incomplete red granite sarcophagus within the chamber, but the cover—and a mummy—are not present.
Regardless of the Great Pyramid’s purpose or construction, it still maintains its reputation as an energy vortex that can awaken the energies of divine nature. We invite you to enjoy a spiritual two-hour private visit to the King’s Chamber on one of our Sacred Egyptian Tours.
