The lost history of the pyramids. In order to fully understand the secret information in the Bible, it is important to understand the size of the system of underground tunnels and related rooms located below the surface of the plateau with the pyramids. There is no information in today’s history books about what happened under the sand several thousand years ago, and this is confirmed by the discoveries that have been made during the last eighty years.
Fayoum Oasis, just a few miles outside of Memphis, is an unusually interesting place. In that lush, fertile valley, the pharaohs, who called themselves ‘lords of the royal hunt’, caught fish and game. Lake Moeris once bordered the Fayum Oasis, and on its shores lay the famous Labyrinth which Herodotus said ‘amazes him endlessly’. The labyrinth contained 1,500 rooms and an equal number of underground rooms that the Greek historian was not allowed to enter.
According to the priests of the Labyrinth, ‘the corridors were confusing and intricate’, in order to be a safe place for the numerous scrolls that were allegedly hidden in the underground rooms. The huge complex particularly impressed Herodotus, and he wrote of the building with admiration and respect: ‘There I saw twelve properly arranged palaces, interconnected by passages, which had numerous terraces and were lined up about twelve halls. It is hard to believe that they are the work of human hands. The walls are covered with reliefs, and each courtyard is tastefully built of white marble and surrounded by a colonnade. Near the corner where the labyrinth ends is a pyramid, eighty meters high, with huge carved figures of animals and an underground passage that can be entered. I have learned from very reliable sources that the underground rooms and passages connect this pyramid with the pyramids at Memphis’.
The pyramids at Memphis were the pyramids at Giza, because Giza was originally called Memphis. Many ancient authors have confirmed the truth of Herodotus’ description of the underground passages that connect the pyramids, and their evidence casts doubt on the reliability of the traditionally presented Egyptian history. Crantor (300 BC) claimed that there were some underground stone pillars in Egypt with carved data on prehistory, and they formed rows along the passage connecting the pyramids. In his famous study On the Mysteries, especially those of the Egyptians, Chaldeans and Assyrians, Iamblichus, a Syrian representative of the Alcandrian School of Mystical and Philosophical Teachings, noted this information about the passage to the great pyramid leading through the body of the Sphinx: ‘Traces of that entrance sand and debris, can still be seen between the front legs of a kneeling colossus. It used to be closed with a bronze gate whose secret lock only the Magi could use. She was guarded by public respect, and a kind of religious fear maintained her inviolability better than armed guards could. Galleries leading to the underground part of the Great Pyramid are carved in the bowels of the Sphinx. These galleries were so skillfully intertwined on their way to the pyramid that anyone who would take that passage without a guide would gradually and inevitably return to the starting point. ‘
Ancient Sumerian cylindrical prints record that the Anunnaki’s secret abode was’ a place underground … reached through a tunnel, whose entrance is hidden by sand and what they call Huwan … his teeth are like dragon’s teeth, his face is the face of a lion ‘. This strange old text, unfortunately preserved in fragments, adds that ‘He (Huwana) is unable to go forward, nor can he go backwards’, but they crept up behind him, and the road to ‘Annunaki’s secret abode’ was no longer blocked . The Sumerian record probably provides a description of the Lion-headed Sphinx at Giza, and if this huge creature was built to protect or hide ancient staircases and passages leading to underground levels below and around it, then its symbolism was very appropriate. Local Arab legends from the 19th century claimed that under the Sphinx there were secret chambers with treasure or magical objects.
and the beliefs were supported by the records of the Roman historian Pliny from the first century AD, who wrote that deep under the Sphinx was hidden ‘the tomb of a ruler called Harmakhis in which are vast treasures’. Interestingly, the Sphinx itself was once called the ‘Great Sflnga Harmakhis guarding the time of the followers of Horus’.
The fourth-century Roman historian Ammianus Marcellinus published additional information about the existence of underground tunnels that seemed to lead to the interior of the Great Pyramid: ‘Inscriptions that the ancients claimed were carved into the walls of certain underground galleries and passages were made deep in the dark interior to ensure that ancient wisdom is not lost in the flood ’.
The manuscript, compiled by the Arab writer Altelemsani, is kept in the British Museum, and mentions the existence of a long, square, underground passage between the Great Pyramid and the Nile, with some ‘strange thing’ preventing access to the Nile. The following event is also described: ‘In the days of Ahmed Ben Touloun, a group entered the Great Pyramid through a tunnel and discovered a glass goblet of unusual color and texture in a spacious room. As they were leaving the pyramid they lost one member, and when they returned to look for him, he appeared before them naked and laughing said – ‘Do not follow and do not seek me’ – and then ran back to the pyramid. His comrades noticed that he was enchanted. ‘
After hearing about the unusual event under the pyramid, Ahmed Ben Touloun expressed a desire to see the glass goblet. During the interrogation, they filled the goblet with water and weighed it, emptied it and weighed it again. The historian wrote that they ‘determined that it is of equal weight when it is empty and when it is full of water’. If the chronicle is correct, the lack of difference in weight provides indirect proof of the existence of an extraordinary science in Giza.
According to Masoudi from the 10th century, mechanical statues with amazing abilities guarded the underground galleries below the Great Pyramid. This description, written a thousand years ago, is reminiscent of computerized robots as shown in science fiction movies today. Masoudi says the automatons were programmed to be intolerant because they destroyed everyone ‘except those who by their behavior proved worthy of leaking’. Masoudi argued that ‘written accounts of wisdom and achievements in various arts and sciences were hidden deep, to be preserved as an archive for the benefit of those who would later be able to understand them’. This is fantastic information, as it is possible that from the time of Masoudi onwards ‘worthy’ persons have seen the mysterious underground chambers. Masoudi admits, ‘I’ve seen things that a man can’t describe for fear that people might doubt his intelligence … and yet, I’ve seen them.’
In the same century, another writer, Muterdi, recorded a bizarre incident that took place in a narrow passage below Giza, where a group of people were horrified to see a neighboring member of their company crushed by a stone door that suddenly flew out of the passage wall. and closed the hallway in front of them. Herodotus said that Egyptian priests recited to him an old tradition about how the original builders of Memphis ‘created underground chambers’. That is why the oldest records mention the possibility of the existence of some kind of spacious system of rooms below the surface of the area surrounding the Sphinx and the pyramids. These old records were confirmed when, in 1993, a seismic survey of the site revealed the existence of a large cavity. The discovery was made public in the documentary The Mistery of the Sphinx, shown to an audience of 30 million people on NBC television the same year. The existence of rooms below the Sphinx is a well-known fact. Egyptian authorities have confirmed that another discovery was made in 1994; that excavation was announced in a newspaper article entitled ‘The Enigmatic Tunnel in the Sphinx’: ‘Workers restoring the dilapidated Sphinx have discovered an ancient passageway leading deep into the body of the enigmatic monument.
Mr. Zahi Hawass, manager of the Giza Monument, said there is no doubt that the tunnel is very old. However, there are some questions: who made the passage? Why? And where does he lead …? Mr. Hawass said he has no intention of removing the stones that close the entrance. A secret tunnel penetrates the Sphinx from the north, about halfway between the Sphinx’s outstretched claws and its tail.
The popular belief that the Sphinx is the real entrance to the Great Pyramid with surprising tenacity has persisted to this day. This belief was confirmed by 100-year-old maps made by Masonic and Rosicrucian devotees, on which the Sphinx was an ornament that was located above the hall, which was connected to all the pyramids by radiating underground passages. These drawings were made according to information originally discovered by the alleged founder of the Society of the Rose Cross, Christian Rosenkrojc, who is believed to have made his way to a ‘secret chamber underground’ and found a library there with books full of secret knowledge. The sketches were created on the basis of information possessed by the archivists of the mystery schools before the clearing of the sand began in 1925, which revealed a hidden door to long-forgotten reception halls, small temples and other underground rooms.
The knowledge of the mystery schools was supplemented by a series of extraordinary discoveries in 1935 that provided evidence for the existence of additional passages and chambers intertwined beneath the pyramids. Many things indicate that the complex in Giza was built with the intention of being a structure that will directly connect the Sphinx, the Great Pyramid and the Temple of the Sun People, below and above the ground. Chambers and passages discovered by sophisticated seismographs and underground surveillance radar (GPR) in recent years have confirmed the accuracy of the plans. Egypt is also successfully using sophisticated satellites to discover archeological sites below the ground in Giza and elsewhere.
At the beginning of 1998, the use of a new detection system began, and the location of 27 as yet unexplored sites in five areas was precisely determined. Ten of these sites are located on the east coast of Luxor, and the rest are in Giza, Abu Rawash, Saqqara and Dashur. The picture of the Giza area shows an almost incomprehensible number of tunnels and chambers that intersect the entire area, which intersect and intertwine, forming a network that stretches across the plateau. The project of searching and measuring from space enabled Egyptologists to determine the location of larger sites, the place where the entrance is probably located and the size of the room before the excavations begin. Attention is especially focused on three secret locations: an area in the desert a few hundred meters west-southwest of the original location of the Cme Pyramid, around which a huge system of seven-meter-high concrete walls covering eight square kilometers is being built; the ancient road that connected the temple at Luxor with Karnak; and the ‘Way of Horus’ across northern Sinai.
Among the mystics or members of the schools of Egyptian mysteries, there was a tradition that says that the Great Pyramid is great in many ways. Despite the fact that it was not entered until 820, the secret schools of pre-Christian Egypt insisted that their interior was well known to them. They constantly claimed that it was not a tomb or a burial chamber of any kind, except that it had one chamber for symbolic burial as part of the initiation ritual. According to mystical legends, the interior is entered gradually and in stages through underground passages. Supposedly, at the end of each phase of advancement, there were different chambers, and the highest and final phase of initiation was what is today called the King’s Chamber.
Little by little, the teachings of the mystery schools were confirmed by archaeological discoveries, as it was established in 1935 that there was an underground connection between the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid, and that the tunnel connected the Sphinx with an ancient temple south of it – now called the Sphinx Temple. As Emile Baraize’s extensive eleven-year sand and shellfish clearing project drew to a close in 1935, unusual stories began to circulate about the discoveries made during the project. The subject of a magazine article written and published in 1935 by Hamilton M. Wright was a remarkable discovery under the sands of Giza whose existence is disputed today. The article was accompanied by original photographs obtained from dr. Selim Hassan, the leader of the scientific research team from the University of Cairo who came to that discovery. The article read: ‘We have discovered an underground passage used by the ancient Egyptians 5,000 years ago. It passes under an embankment that stretches between the second pyramid and the Sphinx. It is possible to pass under the embankment from Cheops’ to Kefren’s pyramid. In this underground passage we discovered and cleaned a series of vertical openings leading to a depth of more than 40 meters, with spacious halls and side chambers’.
Around the same time, international media published additional details about the discovery. The underground complex was originally built between the Great Pyramid and the Temple of the Solar People, because the Kefren Pyramid was a later and only superficial structure. The underground passage and its rooms have been excavated in a compact, living rock – which is a truly remarkable undertaking, considering that it was built several thousand years ago. This is not the end of the story of the underground chambers in Giza, as media reports described the excavation of the underground passages between the Temple of the Solar People on the plateau and the Temple of the Sphinx in the valley. That passage was discovered a couple of years before the publication of the aforementioned article.
The findings were cited by Dr. Selima Hassana and others believe and say publicly that, while the construction of the Sphinx was always a mystery, it is possible that it was part of a larger architectural plan that was deliberately coordinated and implemented along with the construction of the Great Pyramid. Archaeologists made another great discovery at that time. Approximately halfway between the Sphinx and the Pyramid of Kefren, four huge vertical openings, three by three meters wide each, were discovered, leading straight down through compact limestone. On Masonic and Rosicrucian maps, they are called ‘Campbell’s tomb’, and this ‘opening complex’ – says Dr. Selim Hassan – ‘ends with a spacious room, in the center of which is another opening that descends to a large hall on the sides of which are seven chambers’. Some of these chambers contained huge, sealed basalt and granite sarcophagi, six feet high.
The research went further and it was discovered that in one of the seven rooms there is also a third vertical opening, which descends deep to one chamber at a much lower level. At the time of its discovery, it was flooded with water, which partially covered a white sarcophagus. That chamber was called the ‘Tomb of Osiris’, and a fake television documentary in March 1999 showed it ‘open for the first time’. When he explored this area in 1935, Dr. Selim Hassan said: ‘We hope to discover important monuments after we pump out this water’. The total depth of this series of openings is more than 40 meters, or more than 125 feet … During the cleaning of the southern part of the underground passage, an extraordinarily beautiful head of the statue was discovered, which is very expressive in all the details of the face. According to several different newspaper articles from the time, the slatua was an extremely beautifully crafted bust of Queen Nefertiti, described as ‘a beautiful example of that rare type of art inaugurated during the reign of Amenhotep’. It is unknown where that statue is today.
The report also described other chambers and rooms under the sand, all interconnected by secret and decorated passages. Dr. Selim Hassan discovered that not only were there exterior and interior rooms, but they also found a room they called the ‘Sacrifice Chapel’, which was cut into a large stone hill between Campbell’s tomb and the Great Pyramid. In the center of the chapel are three decorated upright pillars that form a triangle with each other. These pillars are a very important detail in this study because their existence is mentioned in the Bible. It can be concluded that Ezra, the initiated writer of the Torah (around 397 BC), knew the layout of the underground passages and chambers in Giza before he wrote the Torah. That underground plan was probably the source of the triangular arrangement around the central altar in the Masonic lodges. In the section Jewish Monuments, Josephus wrote in the first century that Enoch mentioned in the Old Testament built an underground temple consisting of nine chambers. In a deep shelter inside a chamber with three upright pillars, he placed a triangular gold plate on which was written the perfect name of the Deity. The description of Enoch’s chambers was similar to the description of the sacrificial chapel under the sand east of the Great Pyramid.
One vestibule very much like a burial chamber, all ‘undoubtedly a room used for initiation and reception’, was found a little further on a plateau closer to the Great Pyramid and at the upper end of a sloping passage, cut deep into the rock on the northwest side of the sacrificial chamber. Great Pyramids). In the center of the chamber is a four-meter-long white limestone sarcophagus from Turach and a collection of beautiful alabaster vessels. The walls are beautifully decorated with scenes, inscriptions and emblems with many lotus flowers. The descriptions of alabaster bowls and emblems with lotus flowers are strikingly reminiscent of what Sir William Petrie discovered in 1904 in a temple-workshop on top of Mount Sinai / Horeb.
More underground rooms, chambers, temples and corridors were discovered, some of which had upright pillars of circular cross-section, and others refined reliefs with figures of goddesses dressed in beautiful clothes. Report by Dr. Selima Hassana described other magnificently carved figures. The photographs were taken, and one author and researcher who saw them, Rosicrucian H. Spencer Lewis, noted that he was deeply impressed by these images. It is not known where these rare specimens of art and relics are today, but there are rumors that they were smuggled out of Egypt by private collectors. These details are only part of what can be read in the extensive report of Dr. Selim Hassan published in 1944 by the Cairo Government Press under the title Excavations at Giza (10 volumes). However, that is only a part of the whole truth about what is under the pyramids. In the last years of clearing the sand, the workers made the most incredible discovery that stunned the world and attracted the attention of the media from all over the world. Archaeologists at the forefront of the research were ‘confused’ by what they had excavated, and stated that it was the most beautifully landscaped city they had ever seen. It is full of temples, pastel-colored peasant houses, workshops, stables and other buildings, including a palace. It is equipped with an underground hydraulic water supply system, and had the perfect drainage system, as well as other comforts of a modern city. The intriguing question that arises from this discovery is: where is that city today?
Its secret location was recently revealed to a group of selected people, who were given permission to explore and film the city. It is located in a huge natural system of caves under the Giza plateau that stretches east below Cairo. Its main entrance is in the interior of the Sphinx, with stairs carved into the rocks that descend to the cave below the Nile. The expedition took generators and inflatable rubber boats with it, and traveled across an underground river that leads to a lake one kilometer wide. The city is located on the shores of the lake, and it is permanently illuminated by large crystal balls built into the walls and vault of the cave. The second entrance to the city was discovered at the end of a pillar leading to a Coptic church in ancient Cairo (Babylon). As can be deduced from the stories of Jasher and Enoch, the people ‘living in the Earth’, set forth in the Book of Genesis, it is possible that the original name of the city was Gigal. The expedition made the shooting and made a documentary called Chambers of the Deep, which was then shown to a private audience. The initial plan was to show the film to the general public, but for some reason it was abandoned. A spherical crystal object the size of a baseball with a large number of ground surfaces was brought from the city, and its mystical nature was demonstrated at a recent conference in Australia. Deep inside this solid object are various hieroglyphs that slowly turn like the pages of a book at the mental request of the person holding the object. This amazing object reveals an unknown type of technology, and was recently sent for analysis to NASA in the USA.
