At this point, it is pretty clear that the Great Pyramid was built to relay a message of some sort to future generations.  We have seen that the physical outside measurements contain complicated references to just about every aspect of our physical world and even our solar system and beyond, indicating that whoever built this magnificent structure knew as much or more about the physics, geology, and geometry of the world as we do today.  Therefore, it's no surprise that the inside also yields measurements that open up whole new vistas in science, mathematics, and even religion.

The graphic above depicts what we know so far about the layout inside the pyramid, which is not really very much.   The debate rages on as to the significance of this layout.  Was this some sort of machine?  Kinda looks like one to me but that's for another section.

Upon approaching the Pyramids, the first reaction of all visitors is how BIG they are.  Pictures just don't do justice.  Unfortunately, the reaction soon after entering is often abject claustrophobia.   Some people can't handle it at all, especially when they think of the tons of rock piled on top of where they stand.   But for those strong enough, this is an adventure of a lifetime.

When entering the pyramid today, you are actually entering into the excavated break-in site made by Al Mamum who couldn't find the original entrance, which is about 50 feet higher, and is mentioned in history as originally having a rock door that weighed tons but that was so well balanced it could be pushed open with one finger - but from the inside only. 

The first passage you will enter is the descending passage that goes to the subterranean chamber, but this is blocked off today and tourists are not allowed.   This passageway is narrow at about 3.6 feet, and is low at only about 3.11 feet, making for a long crawl downward.  The floor looks more like a gutter for water than a passageway for people, and goes about 345 feet before opening up into the subterranean chamber, which is cut into the bedrock and lies 300 feet beneath the apex of the pyramid (the picture above is not accurate in that respect - the chamber should be directly centered under the pyramid).  Nobody knows for sure what purpose this underground structure served, but plenty of interesting theories abound which are (or will eventually be) discussed on other pages in this section.

Since you can't go down to the subterranean chamber these days anyway, what will really happen when you enter the Great Pyramid is go up - on all fours unless you are really short - because the Ascending Passage is also only 3.6 feet wide and 3.11 feet in height.   You travel like this for 129 feet at which point the passageway levels off and you can continue on horizontally to get to the Queen's Chamber or continue up for the Grand Gallery and King's Chamber. 

The Queen's Chamber is 150 feet down the horizontal passage which at the end finally gives you room to stand upright, a welcome relief for most.    The Chamber itself is 18 feet 10 inches x 17 feet 2 inches and is 15 feet high with a gabled roof.  It lies directly under the apex of the pyramid, which is probably significant, but nobody knows why.   The floor is rough, suggesting that it may have been covered by another material in the past (or was just left rough for whatever reason),  and there are two ventilation shafts here that are blocked and whose original purpose is unknown.  The ventilation shaft going south - or to the right in the picture above, is the shaft that was explored in September, 2002 and was found to be blocked by a door with handles, called the Gantenbrink Door.  Tantalizing evidence so far suggests that on the other side of this door there may be another yet-undiscovered chamber containing who knows what.    On the east wall of the Queen's chamber is an interesting niche or enclave with a 16 foot high triangular-shaped entrance that looks like it would house a large statue or something similar.  Over time, it was dug deeper into the walls of the Pyramid in hopes another chamber would be found.  Nothing has been found, and nobody knows what this niche was originally intended for.  On the north wall there is another shaft that runs horizontally for about 6 feet and then travels upward and terminates about 20 feet from the outside of the pyramid. 

Back out and through the horizontal passageway at the junction of the horizontal passageway and the entrance to the Grand Gallery, you encounter the well shaft, which connects the lower portion of the Grand Gallery to the lower portion of the descending passageway.  The well shaft is a rough-cut, square passageway that measures about 28 inches.  There are rough holes throughout that appear to be foot-holes for climbing, though this is a treacherous climb.    Nobody knows what this shaft was meant to do, but it is theorized that it was built as an escape route for workers once they  sealed the upper portions of the pyramid.  In the middle of the well shaft, there is an opening called the grotto, which lies in an outcropping of stone 25 feet higher than the base of the pyramid that was left intact during the building of the pyramid.   It is thought that the grotto may have been a natural hole in the stone that was enlarged during the building of the well shaft.  Inside the grotto, there is a large block of cut stone, the purpose of which is unknown.

Once back through the cramped horizontal passage, you are finally able to stand up again when you arrive in the lower Grand Gallery.  The Grand Gallery is a hall-like area that is 153 feet long and 7 feet wide at the floor level.  It is built in 7 courses of stone, each of which narrows the space towards the top, making the 28 foot roof shape somewhat triangular.   There are ledges on either side of the walkway, with regularly-spaced slots cut into the stone.  The function of these slots is unknown.   At the end of the Grand gallery, a huge stone step measuring 6 feet wide x 3 feet high, forms a platform that is 8 feet deep.  This leads to a short horizontal passage that in turn leads into an antechamber, and then into the King's Chamber.

Vertical slots in the walls of the antechamber indicate that three giant blocks of stone once blocked the entrance to the King's Chamber.  What happened to these stones is unknown. 

The King's Chamber itself appears to have been built as a double square at 34 feet x 17 feet with a height of 19 feet.  A granite coffer lies within the King's chamber and measures 6 feet 6 inches long, 2 feet 3 inches wide, and 3 feet deep (significantly, these are the exact same dimensions given in the Bible for the missing Ark of the Covenant).  The coffer is a masterpiece of craftsmanship and was apparently drilled in place, as it is too big to fit through the doorway to the chamber. Above the chamber are five "relieving" chambers, originally thought to have been built to help offset the heavy weight above the King's Chamber, a theory not embraced by everyone today.  On the lower corner of the west wall of the King's chamber, there is an area where the wall joints are much bigger than anywhere else in the room, highly suspicious for an opening to another chamber or passageway.  As with the Queen's Chamber, there are two shafts on the north and south walls of the King's chamber, but unlike the Queen's Chamber shafts, these go all the way to the outside of the Pyramid.  They were originally thought to be air shafts, but this theory has come under some scrutiny, and at this point their true purpose is unknown.  It is also significant that the floor of the King's Chamber sits above the lowest course of wall stone, the significance of which is unknown.     

So that in a nutshell is what we know so far about the layout inside the Great Pyramid at Giza, though this layout will come into play often and with more detail in other sections related to the Pyramids on these pages.  The Egyptian Government is unfortunately very reluctant to allow much in the way of further exploration or excavation at this site, so the mysteries remain even today.  There are very likely more passages and chambers that we have not found yet (infrared testing results soon), and no one knows what treasures might be lying just out of our sight.   Interestingly, the Seth materials indicate that indeed, the Great Pyramid does contain secret chambers that can be opened if a certain combination of sound messages are played from within.....

If the Great Pyramid is a machine, could we fix it up and make it run today?  And what would happen if we did?  See the links below for other aspects involving the Giza Pyramids - this is an extremely complex subject and pages are being added as quickly as possible.
