One of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Pyramids of Giza have been a fascination with humans for millennia.
The massive pyramid, built for Pharaoh Khufu and completed around 2560 BC, is the only one of the seven wonders of the ancient world still intact.
Located on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt, this complex has a total of 6 pyramids, 3 towering pyramids (Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure) and 3 smaller pyramids, plus the giant sphinx statue is an attractive destination for tourists.
The great pyramid was built for Pharaoh Khufu.
A few thousand years on Earth still do not reveal all the secrets of the Pyramids. Built from 2.3 million blocks of tightly bonded rock with a total weight of 5.9 million tons. In particular, each stone weighs from 2-30 tons, even with a mass weighing 50 tons.

Until now, scientists have been unable to understand what means the ancient Egyptians used to transport and build such a large-volume structure. In addition, the Giza pyramid complex has geographical challenges that astronomers cannot decipher.
Located in the center of the Earth’s continent
The Pyramids of Giza are located at the intersection of the longest meridian and the longest latitude.
Many consider the Great Pyramid of Giza to be one of the oldest, greatest and most perfect “scientific monuments” on Earth, created thousands of years ago.
It is not only an architectural and technical wonder, but also a geographical wonder because the Pyramids of Giza are located at the intersection of the longest meridian and the longest latitude in the world.
Located directly with the belt of the constellation Orion

The three pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure form a perfect line on the ground. At the same time, they are aligned with the three stars that make up Orion’s Lumbar constellation. This theory was first proposed by Robert Bauval in 1983.
According to computerized calculations, the large Sphinx and the three Pyramids at Giza were compatible with the Orion belt in 10,450 BC.
American archaeologist and engineer Glen Dash came up with a different, simpler idea. His research suggests that the Egyptians about 4,500 years ago may have used the Equinox point to achieve that perfect alignment.
The equinox is considered to be the time of occurrence twice a year (feces spring and equinox), when the plane of the Earth’s equator passes through the center of the Solar disk, and the length of day and night is relatively equal.
Stool point measurements have previously been considered a method of alignment that can… ignored, as it is assumed that it will not provide enough accuracy. But Glen Dash’s work has shown that there is one way that the use of feces points can work – that is, using gnomon – solar clock columns.
To discover this, Glen Dash actually conducted his own experiment, which began on the first day of the 2016 Fall Equinox point – which falls on September 22, 2016 – and used a gnomon to cast a shadow.
The archaeologist monitors the point of the shadow in regular intervals, forming a smooth curve that connects the points together. And at the end of the day, with a stretch of wire wrapped around the pole, Glen Dash blocked two points of the curve and created a near-perfect straight line running east-west.
This is also known as the Indian circle method. Let’s see if it works through the image below:

Glen Dash points out that the level of error is similar to the small error found in the alignment of the pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure at Giza.
The trial was conducted in connecticut, but Glen Dash said the same would work in Egypt.
In fact, all the ancient Egyptians needed to align the pyramids on a sunny, cloudy day, glen dash explains. He added that the Egyptians could calculate the equinox by counting 91 days later from the summer solstice.
Although the American archaeologist’s research is wholehearted because egyptian pyramid studies show that this technique can be used to align the alignment of the pyramids, we do not yet have any solid evidence that the ancient Egyptians did so.
“Unfortunately, the Egyptians left us with very few clues. There are no technical documents or architectural manuscripts that offer a technical explanation for how the ancient Egyptians aligned any of their temples or pyramids,” wrote Glen Dash.
While we may never know what actually happened, this hypothesis makes an interesting point – that something as simple as mapping shadows in the time of Autumn equinox may be sophisticated enough to arrange some of humanity’s most recognizable ancient structures.
According to History.com, the world exists an unusual “Triplet Mystery”. There are three of the world’s most mysterious regions: the Pyramids of Giza, the “Silent Zone” in Mexico, and the Bermuda Triangle (in the Atlantic Ocean) located on the same line on Earth.
The “quiet zone” is capable of disabling all types of sound waves, phones. The Bermuda Triangle is the mysterious disappearance of a series of boats, flying blood.
Giza heads to the north pole of the earth’s best
This work is directed towards the North Pole more accurately than any other building in the world.
Another interesting thing is that the Giza Pyramids complex faces the north pole of the Earth. This work is directed towards the North Pole more accurately than any other building in the world.
Although it was built thousands of years ago, the pyramid is only 0.05 degrees from the North Pole. This is because the North Pole changes over time. When it’s done, it’s headed for the right point.
