Ancient Egypt, dating 5,000 years ago, interestingly, is still a work in progress, at least concerning the “secrets” that people stumble upon up to this very day.
Just like in the Giza pyramid complex, for instance. Zahi Hawass, Egypt’s former Minister of State for Antiquities Affairs, believes that the pyramids still hold some “secrets” not yet discovered even until today.
He hopes to unravel the secrets particularly within the Pyramid of Khufu. The Pyramid of Khufu is the largest of the three main pyramids at Giza. Rising to a height of 481 feet, it was built by Khufu, the second pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty.
Hawass told the media that the site holds a series of doors difficult to access. Thus, nobody else knows essentially where these doors lead to.
He added that while he did visits to the Great Pyramid of Khufu in the past, what he discovered only left him with more questions needing answers.
“I think, until now, the secret doors that I found inside the Great Pyramid are really a discovery that needs many questions and many answers,” the former minister said.
Hawass also said that he found three doors inside the Great Pyramid. The first is on the south entrance of the second chamber, bearing two copper handles. The second is 21 centimeters behind the first door, and the third door also has two copper handles in the northern tunnel.
He is leading a team this December 5th to revisit the Great Pyramid, discover it, and answer questions about these doors.
