25 facts about the Great Pyramid of Giza

The Great Pyramid a true masterpiece and has rightly earned the title of a “Wonder”. It was built with such precision that our current technology cannot replicate it.  Historical analysis shows that the Pyramids were built between 2589 and 2504 BC. There are so many interesting facts about this Pyramid that it baffles archaeologists, scientists, astronomers and tourists. Here are the facts:

  1. The pyramid is estimated to have around 2,300,000 stone blocks that weigh from 2 to 30 tons each and there are even some blocks that weigh over 50 tons.
  2. The Pyramid of Menkaure, the Pyramid of Khafre and the Great Pyramid of Khufu are precisely aligned with the Constellation of Orion.
  3. The base of the pyramid covers 55,000 m2 (592,000 ft 2) with each side greater than 20,000 m2 (218,000 ft2) in area.
  4. The interior temperature is constant and equals the average temperature of the earth, 20 Degrees Celsius (68 Degrees Fahrenheit).
  5. The outer mantle was composed of 144,000 casing stones, all of them highly polished and flat to an accuracy of 1/100th of an inch, about 100 inches thick and weighing approx. 15 tons each.
  6. The cornerstone foundations of the pyramid have ball and socket construction capable of dealing with heat expansion and earthquakes.
  7. The mortar used is of an unknown origin (Yes, no explanation given). It has been analyzed and its chemical composition is known but it can’t be reproduced. It is stronger than the stone and still holding up today.
  8. It was originally covered with casing stones (made of highly polished limestone). These casing stones reflected the sun’s light and made the pyramid shine like a jewel. They are no longer present being used by Arabs to build mosques after an earthquake in the 14th century loosened many of them. It has been calculated that the original pyramid with its casing stones would act like gigantic mirrors and reflect light so powerful that it would be visible from the moon as a shining star on earth. Appropriately, the ancient Egyptians called the Great Pyramid “Ikhet”, meaning the “Glorious Light”.  How these blocks were transported and assembled into the pyramid is still a mystery. – http://www.gizapyramid.com/general.htm
  9. Aligned True North: The Great Pyramid is the most accurately aligned structure in existence and faces true north with only 3/60th of a degree of error. The position of the North Pole moves over time and the pyramid was exactly aligned at one time.
  10. Center of Land Mass: The Great Pyramid is located at the center of the land mass of the earth. The east/west parallel that crosses the most land and the north/south meridian that crosses the most land intersect in two places on the earth, one in the ocean and the other at the Great Pyramid.
  11. The four faces of the pyramid are slightly concave, the only pyramid to have been built this way.
  12. The centers of the four sides are indented with an extraordinary degree of precision forming the only 8 sided pyramid, this effect is not visible from the ground or from a distance but only from the air, and then only under the proper lighting conditions. This phenomenon is only detectable from the air at dawn and sunset on the spring and autumn equinoxes, when the sun casts shadows on the pyramid.
  13. The granite coffer in the “King’s Chamber” is too big to fit through the passages and so it must have been put in place during construction.
  14. The coffer was made out of a block of solid granite. This would have required bronze saws 8-9 ft. long set with teeth of sapphires. Hollowing out of the interior would require tubular drills of the same material applied with a tremendous vertical force.
  15. Microscopic analysis of the coffer reveals that it was made with a fixed point drill that used hard jewel bits and a drilling force of 2 tons.
  16. The Great Pyramid had a swivel door entrance at one time. Swivel doors were found in only two other pyramids: Khufu’s father and grandfather, Sneferu and Huni, respectively.
  17. It is reported that when the pyramid was first broken into that the swivel door, weighing some 20 tons, was so well balanced that it could be opened by pushing out from the inside with only minimal force, but when closed, was so perfect a fit that it could scarcely be detected and there was not enough crack or crevice around the edges to gain a grasp from the outside.
  18. With the mantle in place, the Great Pyramid could be seen from the mountains in Israel and probably the moon as well.
  19. The weight of the pyramid is estimated at 5,955,000 tons. Multiplied by 10^8 gives a reasonable estimate of the earth’s mass.
  20. The Descending Passage pointed to the pole star Alpha Draconis, circa 2170-2144 BCE. This was the North Star at that point in time. No other star has aligned with the passage since then.
  21. The southern shaft in the King’s Chamber pointed to the star Al Nitak (Zeta Orionis) in the constellation Orion, circa 2450 BCE The Orion constellation was associated with the Egyptian god Osiris. No other star aligned with this shaft during that time in history.
  22. Sun’s Radius: Twice the perimeter of the bottom of the granite coffer times 10^8 is the sun’s mean radius. [270.45378502 Pyramid Inches* 10^8 = 427,316 miles]
  23. The curvature designed into the faces of the pyramid exactly matches the radius of the earth.
  24. Khufu’s pyramid, known as the great pyramid of Giza, is the oldest and largest, rising at 481 feet (146 meters). Archaeologists say it was the tallest structure in the world for about 3, 800 years.
  25. The relationship between Pi (p) and Phi (F) is expressed in the fundamental proportions of the Great Pyramid.

          Look, I was being sarcastic regarding his Cheech & Chong, stoner look. I don’t care he is a stoner, but don’t come into a forum that way, meaning that the objection he made clearly showed that he had not read/comprehended/understood what the author had presented.

            Guys, you should really stop insulting each other because of different opinions and even by mistakes did by the others. Just as those empires felt before, ours will too, you guys should really stop acting like it. One is calling the other as stupid, stoner, Cheech e Chong, ”Mental midget”… I don’t expect you guys to be all kind, to look at each others qualities instead of its defects but you could at least talk with a small bit of politeness so the argument could reach somewhere useful for the theme. Nope, you just want war.

      • Mike

        Hey Bob, don’t extole your assumptions about cannabis here. There is a forum for that, and by stating things that you believe to be apparent, it only makes YOU look like the mental midget. Whether someone is stoned or not has nothing to do with what the topic may be. By the way, it makes you look like a complete asshole, which also is apparent. The pyramids would not have been made without the hemp plant BOB. Get a clue.

      Population history of Egypt

      Modern scholars who have studied Ancient Egyptian culture and population history have responded to the controversy over the race of the Ancient Egyptians in different ways.

      Since the second half of the 20th century, most anthropologists have rejected the notion of race as having any validity in the study of human biology.[3][4] Stuart Tyson Smith writes in the 2001 Oxford Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt that “Any characterization of race of the ancient Egyptians depends on modern cultural definitions, not on scientific study. Thus, by modern American standards it is reasonable to characterize the Egyptians as “black”, while acknowledging the scientific evidence for the physical diversity of Africans.”[16] Frank M. Snowden asserts that “Egyptians, Greeks and Romans attached no special stigma to the colour of the skin and developed no hierarchical notions of race whereby highest and lowest positions in the social pyramid were based on colour.”[17][18] Additionally,typological and hierarchical models of race have increasingly been rejected by scientists in favour of models of geographical origin.

      It is now largely agreed that Dynastic Egyptians were indigenous to the Nile area. About 5,000 years ago, the Sahara area dried out, and part of the indigenous Saharan population retreated east towards the Nile Valley. In addition, peoples from the Middle East entered the Nile Valley, bringing with them wheat, barley, sheep, goats, and possibly cattle.[19] Dynastic Egyptians referred to their country as “The Two Lands”. During the Predynastic period (about 4800 to 4300BC), the Merimde culture flourished in the northern part of Egypt (Lower Egypt).[20] This culture, among others, has links to the Levant in the Middle East.[21][22] The pottery of the later Buto Maadi culture, best known from the site at Maadi near Cairo, also shows connections to the southern Levant as well.[23] In the southern part of Egypt (Upper Egypt) the predynastic Badarian culture was followed by the Naqada culture. These people seem to be more closely related to the Nubians than with northern Egyptians.[24][25]

      Due to its geographical location at the crossroads of several major cultural areas, Egypt has experienced a number of foreign invasions during historical times, including by the Canaanites (Hyksos), theLibyans, the Nubians, the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Persians, the Macedonian Greeks, the Romans (Byzantium in late antiquity/early Middle Ages), the Arabs, the Ottoman Turks, the French and the British.

      At the UNESCO “Symposium on the Peopling of Ancient Egypt and the Deciphering of the Meroitic Script” in Cairo in 1974, the Black Hypothesis met with “profound” disagreement.[26] Most participants concluded that the Ancient Egyptian population was indigenous to the Nile Valley, and was made up of people from north and south of the Sahara who were differentiated by their color.[27] The arguments for all sides are recorded in the UNESCO publication General History of Africa,[28] with the “Origin of the Egyptians” chapter being written by Diop.

      In 1996, the Indianapolis Museum of Art published a collection of essays, which included contributions from leading experts in various fields including archaeology, art history, physical anthropology, African studies, Egyptology, Afrocentric studies, linguistics, and classical studies. While the contributors differed in some opinions, the consensus of the authors was that Ancient Egypt was a Northeast African civilization (although ethnic type was not mentioned), based on Egypt’s geographic location on the African continent.[21]

      In 2008, S. O. Y. Keita wrote that “There is no scientific reason to believe that the primary ancestors of the Egyptian population emerged and evolved outside of northeast Africa…. The basic overall genetic profile of the modern population is consistent with the diversity of ancient populations that would have been indigenous to northeastern Africa and subject to the range of evolutionary influences over time, although researchers vary in the details of their explanations of those influences.”[29]

    Just for accuracy, the coffer would not fit directly through that passage, though some researchers have noted (but not tested) it may have been possible to angle the coffer in. That data has not been checked only speculated. They couldn’t measure the angle because they were out of time.

    • Hate Idiots

      Absolute moron who made this comment. I can only assume this person has an issue with its color. The Egyptians of those time is not nearly the same as today. The anotomy of historical drawings does not resemble black or brown. If your statement was the truth then while modern life very much advange with European (white people) technology and Laws, why are countries where poverty and corruption continues very much related to Black and Brown nations?

      • Benjamin Lathan

        Depends upon what historical time period you’re talking about. I’ve had a white poster claim that portraits of Greeks in Egypt in 200AD–who’s people had been there for 5 centuries at that point–represented what the ancient Egyptians looked like. If we look at the actual probable age of the Great Pyramid we’re looking at 10,500BC. The oldest surviving human representation of what the people looked like–although somewhat altered and destroyed like most earlier physical representations of what the people actually looked like–is the Great Sphinx. Even white forensic scientist admit that it is the face of a black sub-Saharan type……. In the late 17 hundreds, Constantin de Volney stated, “…..on visiting the Sphinx, the look of it gave me the clue to the enigma. Beholding that head characteristically Negro in all its features….this race of Blacks who nowadays are slaves and the objects of our scorn is the very one to which we owe our arts, our sciences and even use of spoken word…” You’re right, Egyptians of those times were not nearly the same as today. They definitely weren’t blond and blue eyed as many European recreations of the image of the Great Sphinx put across. All Western recreations of the Great Sphinx depict it as European. So since race has unfortunately been brought up—your response brings up the question of why you base your opinion of what was possible 12,000 years ago on the modern day theology of white supremacy.

        • Manx

          White people were black that far back. Historical race arguments are stupid. races change over a very short period of time. Many paintings in Egypt show Egyptians as tan and Ethiopians as black and people from the north as lighter skinned. Egypt was a melting pot the coffins of King Tut look Asian.

          • EQOAnostalgia

            LOL! That’s absolutely absurd.

      • EBM

        Because white skinned people are at the top of the world financial institutions and therefore control every aspect of every country, even those with dark skinned puppets. “Give me control over a nation’s money and I care not who makes their laws.” Mayer Amschel Rothschild
        Furthermore, if you control the money AND make the laws, the outcome is pretty predictable.

      • Human Being

        Pretty much surprising, indeed, to see this, excluding thinking about this great art, someone here is totally indulged in distinguishing between the technological skills of people, no matter from which point of time, on the basis of skin color…seems like we should develop an attitude adjustments. Human beings are not responsible for their skin color, it is the gene which is acting in the hindrance, or other factors that contribute to the fact he is black or white. I think there is no intelligence involved in saying black or brown people as puppets or idiots. One should determine whether he is mentally sound before making such comments, irrespective of their skin color for sure

        • Mauro Lord

          Yes my friend, you said it all. That’s why only 5 people liked it. The real truth is to hard to conceive by more than one hundreds. I agree with you.

      • Mauro Lord

        Mister “Hate”, you just missed the point. The guy over there did some exaggeration all right, but he’s somewhat right. For everything that wasn’t made by white men, immediately that thing is destroyed (as it were on Africa) or its assumed by modern culture that it was conceived by “aliens.” By saying that they weren’t black or brown back on that age, an absurd statement, I could say you’re in a deep and strong state of denial. That is, just exactly what that guy was trying to say. But unfortunately both of you are racists, but mister ”Hate” is much more racist than mister “Truth”. Do you really think that a modern European, white people as you say, hasn’t any kind of depravity, murdering and corruption? Europe is on crisis friend, also the oh-amazing USA. You’re missing some other stuff too. Tutankhamun’s sarcophagus resembles a white man for you? You need glasses.

        I don’t know if I feel sorry for you, or for those 18 people liking you. When you people are going to learn that the purity of the race isn’t proof of any sort of inferiority, nor superiority, but the intention from within?

        Your damn mind needs to be pure, not the your color. I’m disgusted by both of you, but you even more. A guy who thinks that ”hate” is a good way to behave with a idiotic person, that guy doesn’t even deserve explanation. You’re arrogantly assuming that mister “Truth” might be a “moron” or something, because he thinks differently. I’ll give you a piece of advice. Take other people’s opinion more lightly and without insulting and maybe, – maybe, you can get your mind really pure. But both of you can stay on the color illusion, and preconceptions. Take a look at the pyramids, the sphinx needed to be excavated once.

        Human beings loves to be proud of illusions of power, but earth always swallow that pride no matter the size it has. Here is the real truth mister ”truth”, the Pyramids are definitely a human creation, no matter the color. Just look at the size of its pride.

          You forgot that muslims also destroyed the library of Alexandria and set the world back over 1000 years in knowledge. .muslims went accross the world repressing both race and knowledge just as the Europeans repressed knowledge and race.
          No race is better than the other..
          You are bringing race and culture into something that should not be..
          The pyramid points to something far deeper than man is willing to accept that goes beyond race..In it’s dimensions it points to Bethlehem , and hope, points to the death of Christ and spiritual awakening in the year 33 A.D. It also warns of man’s ignorance and tendency towards destruction in the descending chamber..
          We have all ignored the message and warning. .
          WW1 was predicted, freedom of slavery, wwii was predicted, the present chaos was predicted..its all in the numbers..

      I think that, they DID help build them because how would they know the exact precise? and plus there a WHOLE universe out there and who knows if were the only ones? and obviously they had to be at least a little dumb to know they were aliens in the first place…

    • Aaron Demetrulias

      Who ever said anything about race? What does race have to do with this? This is a wide belife that the Pyramids were built by a different world, not race. Sounds like someone looking for attention…. Seriously it is people like you that cause racism. Nobody thinks to themselves hey lets cover it up with aliens because we know that black or brown people did this so we as white people could be better…..I am so sure that is what goes through everyones mind. If you had any kind of intelligence at all you would understand that back in that time and era there was no kind of technology that could of made the pyramids so precise. The compass was not even invented that long ago but somehow it sits true north. Please think before you speak. You are embarrising yourself.

        Wow mister Foos, what nice words. Truly a gentleman, with all of those sarcasm acting as proof for anything related to race and disguised insults, ack. I can feel the denial and hate on your words, your collage might be incredible because you’re almost doing the same as your racist brother did. White men did some really bad and nasty stuff with the black ones, and with the indigenous too, and with Jews, and with the planet, (the list continues) but you’re right. No one can hold on it forever right? Kennedy was white and he said himself, your incredible white nation is up there at the cost of many resources. Hey man, slaves were used as tools.

        So let us just stand in here and say to them ”get over it.” But I have some bad news for you, you need to get away from denial. It wasn’t you cutting cane for hundred years under heavy punishment and humiliation, there are consequences for that. When the black men were released from that damn torture, they were all illiterate and even more savage than ever. But hey, get over it man, it’s all on you if you feel the consequences.

        Humanity should unity as a whole, but you guys really loves to do exactly the contrary with all that hate in simple comments. Seriously, for everywhere I go on internet and chat, and forums, the only thing I see is angry comments of all sorts. “I’m better than the guy who did that other comment, so I’m going to write it showing all my pride and knowledge by insulting his intelligence”. It’s the internet slogan already.

        The mind and intention, your spirit, needs to be pure. Those colors don’t show shit about it. And why can’t people just start to love each other and stop with those racisn and pride and hate?

        Because unconditional lovers are a minority.

    • Stuart Yee

      Um…okay. So why is this a color issue exactly?

      I personally believe the pyramids were built by ancient human beings, and whatever their ethnicity, the pyramids are a magnificent specimen of innovative engineering.

      I can also say with 100% certainty that even if you personally happen to be of the same ethnic background of those clever peoples, THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU OR VICE VERSA. In short, get a life.

      It really doesn’t matter what color of the skin of the people who built the pyramids
      What matters is that we give significance to the people who did it

      • WhyNot?

        Apparently it DOES matter or whites wouldn’t be expending so much energy denying what the Kemetians themselves indicated. Why try so hard to control the narrative if it didn’t matter on some level? And the face on the Sphinx is undeniably AFRICAN but I’ve even seen that changed to a more european looking depiction in books and documentaries. So I don’t agree that the ancient Kemites ‘race’ doesn’t matter. If it didn’t; whites wouldn’t place so much time, energy and scholarship in changing, covering up or outright ignoring the truth staring at us from all of the monuments in Kemet.

    • banana

      black and brown people were not the only ones that built the pyramid it was also just normal workers that built it it was just workers from egypt that built it when it was impossible to farm because of the nile flooding so

    • Christopher Obergfell

      lol…too much Kool Aid mate.

    • Manx

      lol Black people orginated from south Africa and as they moved north they became lighter perhaps diet or climate. White people are called Caucasians because of the Caucasus mountains where people claim they originated from. Those mountains are not far from Egypt. Rome actually possessed the same prowess in construction up until the library of Alexandria was burned. it seems as though the brains in Egypt migrated north long ago and created Rome. The truth seems to be that we all started from the same place and though we changed with Time every race has had its day just look at Ancient Ethiopia those people were very very black and at one point they were the center of the world technology, But were destroyed by excess immigration of uncivilized people. So in the end the answer is Educate yourself and your children and you will succeed even if you have to migrate out of a hellish stew pot of ignorance and violence.

      • WhyNot?

        Stupid. Why aren’t there comparable monuments in say, Norway or Denmark, since you are implying that all that civilization came from the ‘north’? So you are saying that europeans came all the way to Africa to build these maginificent monuments but left NOTHINg comparable in Europe where they were from? Does that sound logical to a sane person? Why didn’t the Greeks or Romans copy Norwegian or Danish ‘civilizations’ then? Oh, that’s right..they were non-existent at that time. Let’s face it: civilization started IN THE SOUTH and went NORTH. Not the other way around. If you can’t be honest about that fact; then nothing else you say is credible.

      It would surprise you to know that there are plenty of white people in the world who see blacks and every other race as individuals as unique, valuable, and varied as any other. People who see character, and not color. But when you say that in the public; as a white person, you’re still called “The devil” Generations of individuals who have nothing to do with discrimination or oppression will; in the minds of some, remain the enemy for the color of their skin because of acts wholly unrelated to they themselves. Ironic. Perhaps just, yet utterly useless energy spent. Building bridges between both sides of any roaring river is the high road and path to equality. Blacks are individuals. Whites are individuals. The fences need to be let down.

    I’ve read several places the internal temp of the pyramids was 68F. When I visited I the pyramid of Giza, I thought they’d be cool inside as well, but it wasn’t. It was actually quite warm, and stuffy. I would have loved 68F, as I visited during the summer, and would have enjoyed the coolness to explore the pyramid in.

    Dear Mr. Petričević,

    Thank you for the article. I am a fellow writer and interested party such as yourself. I am working on research in the area of astronomical communications. Can you please provide your source(s) for the following claim that you made in this article:

    > > >
    It has been calculated that the original pyramid with its casing stones would act like gigantic mirrors and reflect light so powerful that it would be visible from the moon as a shining star on earth. Appropriately, the ancient Egyptians called the Great Pyramid “Ikhet”, meaning the “Glorious Light”.
    < < <

    I am researching the topic of the reflected light of the pyramids. It would be most useful if you might be able to provide an academic citation for the source of the calculations that you make reference to in the above excerpt from your article.

    Thank you,

    Truth and Pain….forgets if it was only two tones that had such great technology…..we would have been driving cars by the time the first sands ate the pyramids….or shall we forget the slaves of then….the last ruler…Cleopatra was Roman…..the slaves were indeed prisoners….and hierarchy was based on what class you were born in…not the color of your skin. So if the Noble was black….his children would be Nobleman…..if the farmer was African their children would be farmers….get the idea. According to history…..we all came from Africa…and different groups moved…migrated….hence changing the needs of our bodies over generations to be as our bodies needed…food, climate, medicines available. Bone density. When one territory was won families were slaughtered and people were taken as prisoners. With no exact date that can be agreed upon…whose to say the pyramids are not 12,000-4500 years old. Whose to say we didn’t lose land masses from tidal waves or tsunamis. There are supposedly Pyramids older then these in China….Bosnia….OMG! Ruins that are seen here we say are ancient Indian Burial Grounds…..Inca…..there were not a whole lot of black people there……and they find temples mimicking alignments of the pyramids OLDER then Giza. I am Irish…and I have a Spanish last name by marriage….if I tanned they would call me brown too. My husband got darker….he would be called black.

    Um not to burst anyones bubble here.The pyramid solves as visual science…like a giant game of Pictionary…Small medium and large volcanic structures make the big one a super volcano that was coated in mirror thus you see a super volcanic mirror idea in middle of desert, everyone does, if you restore the stones. NOW maybe that would not make sense to many people who know phenomenons of nature such as tornado, or tsunami, or earthquake etc…but there is a volcanic reflective phenomenon that happens every time with super volcanoes, and rarely with big but not super eruptions, like Pinatubo 1991. Pinatubo erupted with enough power to flood the stratosphere with acid rain aerosols which then spread out around the entire planet and stayed up years. Acid rain is highly solar reflective and incoming sun heat and radiation are reflected away by this phenomenon dubbed descriptively by scientists in 1993 *volcanic mirror*. thus incoming sun is lessened and earth cools. Pinatubo caused a .50 +-drop in temperatures of the entire world.Had Pinatubo been a super volcano an ice age would be in effect. A reflectivity associated with super volcanoes so powerful it cools worlds, so powerful that if geoengineered to help the world it could protect all men and beasts from sun, OR so powerful as a WMD that an ice age could be fast generated with a mortality rate across the board of 90%….without hurting earth at all and would then melt once the aerosols dispersed in a few years…A volcanic mirror phenomenon that reflects sun and cools worlds and an ideogram in the middle of desert when restored ..Small medium and SUPER VOLCANO MIRROR…It is atmospheric geoengineering instruction , “mimic volcanic reflectivity above man and beast in density to protect from sun” Pictionary and visual communication SOLVE by “What you see”….we restored the mirror to Cheops WHAT do you SEE? Volcanic Mirror ……it solves…we have Easter Island and others, across our world is written the only way to save earth, like a giant game of Pictionary…category:Science…The Egypt eye? It tells you its visual communication….

    Can I say this all is a tribute to someone bigger? Can I say those who built the pyramids, had to praise that who built the much bigger thing they walked on, the earth and the sun to keep it growing? If one believed in divine, creator of all things, then one would know all human did was for what god did to him. We put a man on moon, no height to it at all, certainly the skin would suffer, lose all color if god bid us to stay and belong. This is the tower one could build and fall down speaking in tongues.
