Emanating with wonder, mystery, and intrigue as to how they were built and for what purpose, Egyptian pyramids are wonderful and mysterious in nature. Here are nine such facts about the Egyptian pyramids that will make you think about these secretive buildings in the world.
The Great Pyramid of Giza is built with 6 million tons of precisely placed stone, covering about 13.6 acres of land. The foundation being so precise, not a single corner is even a 1/2 inch higher or lower than the others.
The average height of land above sea level is approximately 5448 inches, which is exactly the height of the pyramid from top to bottom upon it’s creation.
The pyramids are located at the exact center of the Earth’s landmass (east/west parallel, and north/south meridian).
It is impossible for humans in today’s day in age to replicate the building of the pyramids with the technology.
The pyramid shape in sacred geometry principles indicate healing light and spiritual energies.
The three pyramids of Giza are in line with the Constellation of Orion. Such clear-cut, mathematical precision would be extremely difficult to accomplish without the use of high quality telescopes.
The Great pyramid of Giza is made of about 2,300,000 stone blocks, each weighing anywhere between 2 to 30 (even 50) tons!
Moving such immense objects back in the age of simple hand tools to chisel stone and horse- drawn chariots for transportation, suggests something else may have been at play.
The pyramids have lasted so long and remain so well-preserved due to the unique mortar used, which is stronger than it’s actual stone. However scientists are currently unable to determine exactly what it was made from.
They were once covered in a casing made entirely of highly polished white limestone. This would have reflected the sun’s light and made the pyramids shine like bright jewels.
