The Pyramids at Giza consists of three main pyramids: The Great Pyramid, The Pyramid of Khafre and the Pyramid of Menkaure as well as the Great Sphinx and other associated surrounding buildings.

The complex was built between 2600 and 2500 BC in the Fourth Dynasty of the Old Kingdom of Egypt.

As such the pyramids are approximately 4,500 years old.

The site sits on the edge of the Western Desert and about 9 kilometers (5.6 miles) from the Nile River and 13 kilometers (8 miles) from the city centre in Cairo.

It is the largest of Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one still standing.

The area is surrounded by cemeteries and a worker’s village.

The reason for the construction of the pyramids that is most believed is that they are for the deceased remains of the Pharaohs, but this is far from certain. The theories surrounding the Giza complex are so vast in number they would fill an entire website on their own.

Thus far beyond the scope of this one article.

The Giza complex is part of a UNESCO site and is considered an important and integral part of the history of human civilization.


Paranormal Activity

The strangest part of this haunting is no one has ever seen a ghost inside or even close to one of the pyramids.

The ghost of Howard Carter – the man who discovered the burial chamber of Pharaoh Tutankhamun (better known as King Tut) – has been seen throughout the site. He is described as wearing early 20th century clothing.

There are also numerous reports of large balls of light leaving the complex and heading toward the Valley of the Kings. These are thought to be the spirits of Pharaohs.

Pharaohs themselves, in all their ancient glory, have been seen walking in the site.

Apparitions of other people, clearly not from modern times, have also been reported at the site. Many of these reports date back centuries.

People who own nearby houses have reported hearing phantom screams and disembodied voices telling them to leave the sacred site.

Of course, one must never forget the Pharaoh’s curses on anyone who disturbs their final resting places.

The cultural significance of this site cannot be measured.

This location was used for the earthly remains of the Pharaohs and other respected nobles during the Eighteenth and Twentieth Dynasties of the Ancient Egypt (16th to 11th Centuries BC) over a period of nearly 500 years.

It is located on the west bank of the Nile River near the ancient city of Thebes (modern day Luxor).

This area became the subject of archaeological investigations during the 18th Century which continue to this day. In 2006 and 2008 new tombs and chambers were still being discovered making the total of tombs estimated at 63.

Although most of the tombs were opened and robbed centuries ago this location still provides us with immense knowledge of the Egyptian religious rites and funeral rites.

It is also the site of the tomb of King Tutankhamun (King Tut) perhaps the most famous of all of the Pharaohs in modern times and the beginning of the legend of the Pharaoh’s Curse.

A new tourist center has recently opened in the area.


Paranormal Activity

Almost everyone who has spent any measurable time in this valley has described a feeling of immense paranormal/etheric power. It is thought that 5 centuries of rituals, spells and magick have left an ever present well of paranormal energy.

There is an incredibly powerful feeling that you are being observed (and perhaps judged) by the ghosts – or Gods - of this valley. This location is considered one of the most powerful centers of cosmic energy on Earth.

This is the place where some of the most powerful Kings in world history were lain to rest and perhaps one of the few places where the Gods still walk among us.

The apparition of a Pharaoh riding a chariot has been seen crossing the valley at midnight. He wears his golden collar and his full head dress with his chariot being pulled by black horses.

Other activity: an overwhelming feeling of awe; disembodied voices and whispers; light anomalies and a feeling of never being alone.

The Curse of King Tut’s Tomb

In the 1920′s the tomb of King Tut was found and suddenly some truly strange and bad things began to happen. The discoverer’s bird was killed by a cobra (the ancient symbol of the Pharaohs) in the desert but then found alive in King Tut’s tomb a few days later. The discoverer himself died within a few months and at the time of his death all the lights in the city of Cairo went out inexplicably.

On a side note, it is rumored that the RMS Titanic was carrying artifacts from the Valley of The Kings to the US when she struck an iceberg and suck in April of 1912. Was this another example of the Curse of the Pharaoh’s asserting itself?

We are, in the end, plundering a cemetery with our investigations, you can’t expect the dead to sit still for that can you?
