Pyramids have been discovered all over the world. Although, most of the time when we think of pyramids we think about Egypt. Pyramids have been located in China, America, Nigeria, Greece, Spain, Mexico, and many other places across the globe. The staff at Sugar Land Chiropractors would like the opportunity to visit the pyramids. The most famous pyramids of Egypt are in Giza which is located near the Nile rive in the outskirts of Cairo. The Great Pyramid of Giza, which is located in Egypt, is the most ancient construction among the seven wonders of the ancient world. It is also the primary tourist attraction of Egypt.
It is the belief of Egyptians that pyramids were built to act as a tomb for pharaohs. It was the belief that after death some or part of the spirit remained with the body. Egyptians would mummify the body and bury gold, food, furniture, vessels among other items. It was thought that the king or pharaohs would need these items in their afterlife. Close to the pharaoh pyramids are other pyramids that were built for the relative of the pharaohs to accompany them in their afterlife. The staff at Sugar Land Chiropractors are not sure how accurate the details regarding the pyramids.
According to historians, few of the oldest Egyptian pyramids were built by the pharaohs during 2200-2500 BC. One of the first Egyptian pyramid was built by Pharaoh Djoser and his principal architect Imhotep. Along with the staff at Sugar Land Chiropractors, the first Egyptian pyramid was believed to be a step pyramid consisting of six step structures. These structures are call Mastabas which means ìhouse of eternityî. This became a trend resulting in many powerful rulers having pyramids built for themselves.
The Step Pyramid of Saqqara is thought to be the first pyramid in Egypt. However, Sugar Land Chiropractors are not convinced that this is the first pyramid built in Egypt. It consists of six steps with a height of 204 feet. The base of the step pyramid was 358×411 feet. The outer layer of the pyramid was once covered with limestones. However, these limestones are no longer present. This pyramid is located in the middle of temples, house of priests and other administrative buildings of the Egypt empire. These structures cover approximately 40 acres of land and is surrounded by a 30-foot wall.
Out of all of the pyramids, The Great Pyramid of Giza is among the seen wonders of the ancient world. It was built in 1560 BC. Being the oldest structure of the seven wonders, The Great Pyramid of Giza has been granted Honorary status.
Most of the Egyptian pyramids were each built differently. It is amazing to Sugar Land Chiropractors that something so huge was built with less technology than we have today. Many architects and archeologist have spent years in order to provide theories on how these pyramids were built. The construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza was approximately 481 feet high with the bases, in the shape of a square, almost 756 feet on each side. The base corners were built to be a perfect 90 degrees. The pyramid was built of stones that each weighed 12 to 20 tons. It took over 2 million stones to build the pyramid. The largest blocks are placed at the bottom and the higher up on the pyramid the smaller the block become.
It took the Egyptians about 20 years to build this pyramid. The granite blocks were mined from distances as far as 500 miles. With todayís technology, it would be difficult at best to build a pyramid as immense and precise as this one. The outer surface of the pyramid was covered with a layer of fine quality white limestones. The remaining of the pyramid does not have limestones as many of these have been stolen. Archeologists believe that the stones were pulled to the top using some sort of ramp structure. However, the Sugar Land Chiropractors agree that in actuality it is not known what process was really used. Although inner blocks do not fit together snugly, the outer blocks fit together so tightly that even a credit card cannot be inserted between two stone blocks.
History book have mentioned that the pharaohs used slaves for building pyramids. However, it is believed that this is not true. Some historians believe that the people of Egypt voluntarily contributed for building the pyramid because they believed that the pharaohs are the representatives of the sung go ìRaî. It confuses Sugar Land Chiropractors that people would actually volunteer to work on such as strenuous job as this one.
A few archeologist and researchers claim that the pyramids were built to act as a power generator house because of the different types of stones that have been discovered inside. These stones include limestone, dolomite, and granite to name a few. In the ancient Serapeum of Saqqara, present in the northwest of the great pyramid, there are 24 large granite boxes. Each of these boxes weigh approximately 100 tones each. Some researchers believe that the hollow granite boxes were intended to bury bulls that pharaohs used to pray; some believe the generation of electrical power was created using these granite boxes.
A mysterious chamber was discovered inside the great pyramid in 1993. This chamber is called the Queenís Chamber. This chamber was explored using a remote-controlled camera in 2011. This produced astonishing videos. Located inside the Queenís Chamber were copper wires and inscription on the inner wall which engineers suspect that the ancient Egyptians used to know the generation of electric power. Unfortunately, today there is not trace of this discovery. It baffles the staff at Sugar Land Chiropractors that the materials inside the pyramid could go missing.
Since the presence of multiple pyramids are located across the earth, few people now think that the pyramids were built by aliens. It is also doubtful that these structures act as a gateway to interact with aliens. The Egyptian pyramids that were believed to be tombs, in fact do not contain any graves or at least none have been found. It is believed that there are three chambers discovered inside the great pyramid. The upper room is called the Kingís chamber, the middle room is called the Queenís chamber and the last room is called the Unfinished chamber. It is thought that there are many other rooms present inside the pyramid which as of today have not been discovered.
