The Great Pyramid of Giza: Why the builders of the Great Pyramid chose to construct it to the size that they did


The Great Pyramid of Giza is without a doubt, one of the most incredible and enigmatic structures built on the surface of our planet. While we still do not know for certain who, how and why the Great Pyramid of Giza was built, there are several theories that try and explain this enigmatic structure.

Even though archaeologists believe the pyramids date back to around 2589 and 2504 BC, many researchers believe the Pyramids at the Giza plateau are far older. These incredible constructions were erected by a civilization that had no knowledge of the wheel and was according to mainstream scientists, technologically limited.

Yet, somehow, the builders of the Great Pyramid had the knowledge and ability to create a structure that coexists with our planet in perfect harmony. Since the information regarding the structure itself is extremely limited, there is little to go on that could help understand how the ancients managed such perfect harmony and precision.


The Size of the Great Pyramid of Giza

Why did the builders of the Great Pyramid build such a humongous monument?

While the builders of the Pyramid remain a mystery and the methods used to erect such an incredible project are unknown to us, we can only wonder how all of this was achieved thousands of years ago. The greater enigma is perhaps why the builders of the Great Pyramid built a structure of incredible size.

There are quite a few articles and publications that make reference to the Great Pyramid and its humongous size. In many of those publications, it is mentioned that the Pyramid’s full baseline circumference is almost 0.5 of a single minute of arc, on the plane of our planets equator.

In recent decades, several researchers have proposed that this was, in fact, one of the key factors that determined the majestic size of the Great Pyramid of Giza: It was built in such a way so that the square base circumference of the Pyramid would be equal to half of one minute of arc, represented at the plane of the equator, something that fractionally can be interpreted as 1 / 43200 of the full circumference.

Taking into account all of the above mentioned we can only wonder how the ancients knew the size of our planet. Not only did the ancient builder know the exact size and shape of the Earth, they managed to place the Great Pyramid of Giza 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.

This also indicates that whoever built the Great Pyramid must have used an ellipsoid model of our planet which demonstrates that the builders of the Pyramid had a very precise set of dimensions of our planet. Where the builders of the Great Pyramid obtained this knowledge from, remains a great mystery. But is it possible that there is an error in the calculations and that this isn’t the primary principle that determined the size of the Pyramid?

Wrong Calculations, did the builder miss something?

Based upon the previous we can establish the following:

The square-base circumference of the Great Pyramid of Giza is equal to 3023.15 feet.

3023.15 / 5280 = 0.572566287 statute miles

0.572566287 x 43200 = 24734.86364 statute miles

Now, if we compare it to the actual value for the Earth equatorial circumference we obtain the following measure:

Value of Earth circumference = 24902.4 statute miles Therefore: 24902.4 – 24734.86364 = 167.536 miles


These measurements mean that if the builders deliberately intended for the structure to have a square-base circumference of 1 / 43200 of the equatorial circumference of our Planet.

it is very unlikely that they would have made an error on the order of some 167 miles respecting a 1 / 43200 relation; a point which, if accepted effectively destroys the idea that such a ratio was the governing principle that determined the fundamental size of the Great Pyramid.

But if the 1 / 43200 ratio isn’t the reason why the builder chose the size of the Great Pyramid they did, then what is?
