5. Puzzling Shafts

14 Facts About Pyramids You Did Not Know

The shafts are a perplexing matter for scientists. This is the only pyramid having the shafts in its structure. It is said that the shafts don’t function practically but they are aligned perfectly with the celestial bodies.

6. The Pyramid of Giza

The Pyramid of Giza has “the most intricate tunneling system the world has seen.”  It sounds strange because the civilization back then had no lifters and trucks to help and move the blocks. Pyramid of Giza has secret chambers, passages and also the maze of hallways that gets everybody awestruck.

7. Eight Perfect Sides

Egyptians had an advanced technology that makes every one of us wonder how they did that. Other than the tunnels and secret chambers, the Pyramid of Giza holds eight sides of precision.  It looks like that the pyramid has perfect four slides but when you go closer you will notice the change in its degree and the way stone is held in place.

Scratching brains will not be enough!

Mortar is used to glue the stone blocks together. Scientists and researchers identified that how the mortar formed but was unable to track its existence. The mortar was made from gypsum.  This material has even “outlasted” some of the stones.

12. Just A Door, No Big Deal

The 20-ton door is a puzzle in itself too. The door is invisible to the unknown eye; it is made in such a manner. The designs and precise engineering is incredible.
