Hidden Corridor Discovered in Great Pyramid of Giza

A nine-meter (30-foot) long hidden passage has been discovered near the main entrance of the 4,500-year-old Great Pyramid of Giza.

However, now Egyptian antiquities officials say that the discovery will open the way to know more about the Great Haram of Giza.

The discovery was made during a scientific project called Scan Pyramids, for which since 2015 the interior of the pyramid has been examined using modern technology.

Egyptian officials said the unfinished corridor was possibly built to relieve the weight of the pyramid’s structure on the central entrance, or it may have led to an as-yet undiscovered chamber.

It should be noted that the Great Pyramid of Giza is the only one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World that still exists in the world and has also been included in the New 7 Wonders of the World.

It was built in the reign of Pharaoh Khufu in 2560 BC.

Egyptian antiquities officials say they will continue to explore the Great Haram at Giza, so we can see what we find at the end of this corridor.
