Explorers have discovered a mysterious passageway 9 meters long and 2 meters wide inside the Giza Pyramid in Egypt. The corridor was found near the main entrance of the 4500-year-old pyramid. Egypt is a favorite country of history buffs and archaeologists around the world. The country with the pyramids that surprised the world. The tombs and pyramids of many kings of Egypt such as Tutankhamun, Ramses, Thutmose, etc. have given mankind a lot of knowledge about ancient times. One of the most famous of the pyramids is the one at Giza. It is known as the Great Pyramid of Giza.
It was built as the final resting place of Pharaoh Khufu, who ruled Egypt from 2551 to 2528 BC. Giza is the largest pyramid built in ancient Egypt. This pyramid is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World that is still standing today. There are many mysteries about the Giza Pyramid. One of these is the suspicion that the secret chamber was inside. Experts could not be sure if it was a cavity. It was also suspected that these are the hollows or hollows inside the pyramids.
Since the 1960s, scientists have used various scientific techniques to examine and evaluate the structures at the Giza Pyramid. A survey called Scan Pyramid conducted during 2016-17 confirmed that there is a large hollow inside. This research result was published in the journal Nature. This is considered to be one of the most remarkable historical discoveries of that year.
Later, a new mission, Explore the Great Pyramid, examined the Pyramid of Giza using a new technology called muon tomography. Muons are created when cosmic rays, which are high-energy rays from the universe, strike the Earth. Muon tomography is an imaging technique using these levels. When imaging with this method, the structure is revealed with 100 times more resolution than other methods. Later, ultrasound and radar tests were also conducted. Finally got a clear picture of the corridor.
There are already various arguments about what this corridor could be. The argument that may excite scientists the most is that the emperor’s tomb may be located here. But sometimes this is just a structural void. It was found earlier that there is a small empty hollow near this. Khufu was the second pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty of Ancient Egypt. Information about his life is relatively less. Khufu was the son of Snefru, the founder of the Fourth Dynasty. Khufu had four wives and 12 children. Apart from the Pyramids of Giza, Khufu also built temples for the goddesses Hathor and Bastus.
