Mysterious sarcophagi in an underground temple of Giza
Sarcophagi weigh more than 100 tons. They are made of solid Aswan granite and are quite accurate from the point of view of engineering tolerances. What can be considered a remarkable achievement today.
24 strange and ominous coffin in the form of the black boxes were discovered buried in a cave on a hillside, 12 miles South of the great Pyramid at Giza.
Mastery of stone cutting, accurate to a few microns, so remarkable that some experts came to the conclusion that they were not built for Egyptian pharaohs, but in fact left on earth by an alien race and just was rated kings.
The graves are believed to be the burial place of the APIs bulls. APIs — the sacred bull of the Egyptians, the God of fertility. Cult center of the God APIs was the city of Memphis is one of the most important religious, administrative and cultural centers of Ancient Egypt.
According to The Express, on the perfect black boxes discovered some hieroglyphs, but they are of such poor quality that considered as graffiti.
The real purpose and function of the box remains unclear, but they were clearly of great importance, as it was carved with such precision that allowed them to be sealed for many millennia.
Necropolis known as the Serapeum at Saqqara, in the abandoned city of Memphis, Egypt. It remains a mystery how the ancient culture was able to cut such a huge and fine sarcophagi. Formally, burial place, believed to have been built somewhere 3,300 years ago by Ramses II.
Recent studies show that this is the grave of bulls, and Apes, which were venerated as the incarnation of the God Ptah.
Egyptologists claim that because the bulls were worshipped as gods of Khaemuas, the son of Ramesses II ordered that in one of the mountains, was dug a tunnel to the burial site and created a side room, where there will be a huge granite sarcophagi weighing up to 100 tons each, that it contained the mummified remains of the bulls.
The temple was discovered by August Mariette, who went to Egypt to collect Coptic manuscripts but later he became interested in the remains of the necropolis at Saqqara.
In 1850, Mariette found the head of one Sphinx sticking out of the quicksand, cleaned the sand and followed the Boulevard to the place.
After using explosives to clear rocks blocking the entrance to the catacomb, he excavated most of the complex.
