There is an astonishing ‘Lost’ underground city beneath the Pyramids of Giza, and it was thoroughly chronicled in the past, even though only a few people are aware of it today.

When you consider that the ancient city of Memphis, the former capital of Egypt (modern-day Giza), is packed with subterranean corridors, shafts, a cavern system, and chambers that house thousands of years of history and innumerable relics, the Giza Plateau becomes even more fascinating.

However, unlike many other discoveries made in Egypt over the years, Egyptian authorities are unwilling to share what has been discovered beneath Giza with the general public.

When it comes to the Ancient Egyptian Civilization and the enigmatic Pyramids, which many believe predate the Egyptian Civilization itself, orthodox researchers have utterly overlooked a forgotten past.

According to the Ancient Code, to fully comprehend the fragments of history we’ve been taught in school, we must first recognize that conventional scholars have utterly overlooked many discoveries on our planet.

One of these discoveries was made beneath the surface of the Pyramid Plateau in Egypt, where a large subterranean tunnel system containing halls and apartments was unearthed.

A true history of what transpired beneath the sands thousands of years ago is missing from mainstream teachings about our civilization’s past; as evidenced by the innumerable discoveries” in recent decades that show history as we know it, is only partial.

In order to learn more about the mysterious underground “city” beneath the Giza Plateau, we travel to the Fayum Oasis region, a few kilometres outside of Memphis Nome. It’s worth noting that Lake Moeris used to border the Fayum Oasis, and just on its shores was the intriguing Labyrinth, which Herodotus characterized as “an endless wonder to me.”

The enigmatic ‘Labyrinth’ was reported to have up to 1500 rooms and an equivalent number of subterranean chambers, which the Greek philosopher was not allowed to investigate.

According to the Labyrinth’s caretakers, the tunnels were “baffling and intricate,” and were designed to keep the innumerable ancient writings and scrolls safe in the many underground chambers.

In fact, Herodotus was so taken aback by the ancient complex that he felt forced to write about it:

There I saw twelve palaces regularly disposed, which had communication with each other, interspersed with terraces and arranged around twelve halls. It is hard to believe they are the work of man, The walls are covered with carved figures, and each court is exquisitely built of white marble and surrounded by a colonnade.

Near the corner where the labyrinth ends, there is a pyramid, two hundred and forty feet in height, with great carved figures of animals on it and an underground passage by which it can be entered. I was told very credibly that underground chambers and passages connected this pyramid with the pyramids at Memphis.

In truth, ancient Memphis (Giza) has a massive underground system that includes a maze of complicated man-made corridors as well as underground rivers and tunnels. While the vast underground caverns were mentioned thousands of years ago, they have been mapped using ground penetrating radar since 1978 thanks to explorations headed by Dr. Jim Hurtak, who is said to have penetrated massive chambers larger than the grandest churches ever built by modern man.

In addition to the foregoing, he mentioned a massive underground metropolis beneath the Giza Plateaus, which is thought to be at least 15,000 years old.

Interestingly, Herodotus’ claim of underground corridors connecting large pyramids was backed up by a number of ancient authors. It’s worth noting that Iamblichus, also known as Iamblichus Chalcidensis or Iamblichus of Apamea, a Syrian Neoplatonist philosopher, spoke about a passage through the Sphinx’s body heading inside the Great Pyramid of Giza:

This entrance obstructed in our day by sands and rubbish, may still be traced between the forelegs of the crouched colossus. It was formerly closed by a bronze gate whose secret spring could be operated only by the Magi.

It was guarded by public respect, and a sort of religious fear maintained its inviolability better than armed protection would have done. In the belly of the Sphinx were cut out galleries leading to the subterranean part of the Great Pyramid.

These galleries were so artfully crisscrossed along their course to the Pyramid that, in setting forth into the passage without a guide throughout this network, one increasingly and inevitably returned to the starting point.

Crantor (300BC) stated that Herodotus’ writings were corroborated by a group of underground pillars in Egypt that contained written stone records of prehistory.

Even more intriguing are the chronicles of the Anunnaki and their secret dwelling, which are recorded on ancient Sumerian cylinder seals and described as, “An underground place … entered through a tunnel, its entrance hidden by sand and by what they call Huwana … his teeth as the teeth of a dragon, his face the face of a lion.”

This old manuscript, which has been split into multiple parts, also records that “He [Huwana] is unable to move forward, nor is he able to move back” but they crept up on him from behind, and the way to “the secret abode of the Anunnaki” was no longer blocked.

The Ancient Sumerian texts surprisingly provided a relatively good description of the lion-headed Sphinx at Giza, a monument that predates the Ancient Egyptian civilizations and was built to guard the Pyramids and innumerable chambers and tunnels beneath Giza.

However, more evidence of large underground chambers can be found in the writings of first-century Roman historian Pliny, who claimed that there is a hidden “tomb of a ruler named Harmakhis that contains great treasure” beneath the mighty Sphinx. Surprisingly, the Great Sphinx was formerly referred to as “The Great Sphinx Harmakhis who mounted guard since the time of the Followers of Horus.”

Ammianus Marcellinus, a fourth-century Roman writer, described the existence of corridors leading to the inside of the Great Pyramid at Giza, providing additional evidence for the presence of the subterranean vaults, “Inscriptions which the ancients asserted were engraved on the walls of certain underground galleries and passages were constructed deep in the dark interior to preserve ancient wisdom from being lost in the flood.”

More proof can be discovered in a manuscript kept in the British Museum by Arab writer Altelemsani. Between the Great Pyramid and the Nile River, Altelemsani documented the existence of a large square underground chamber. According to Altelemsani, something massive stood in the way of the Nile’s arrival.

Altelemsani wrote, “…In the days of Ahmed Ben Touloun, a party entered the Great Pyramid through the tunnel and found in a side-chamber a goblet of a glass of rare color and texture. As they were leaving, they missed one of the party and, upon returning to seek him, he came out to them naked and laughing said, ‘Do not follow or seek for me’ after which he dashed back into the pyramid. His companions thought he was charmed.”

After hearing about weird events beneath the Pyramid, Ahmed Ben Touloun expressed interest in seeing the goblet of glass. It was filled with water and weighed throughout the inspection, then emptied and re-weighed. It was “found to be of the same weight when empty as when full of water.”

Interestingly, a writer named Masoudi stated in the 10th century that advanced mechanical sculptures guarded the subterranean galleries beneath the Great Pyramid of Giza. His depiction, written over a thousand years ago, is comparable in importance to today’s computerized robots. These robots, according to Masoudi, were designed to kill everyone “except those who by their conduct were worthy of admission.”

He wrote, “…written accounts of Wisdom and acquirements in the different arts and sciences were hidden deep, that they might remain as records for the benefit of those who could afterward comprehend them.”

Masoudi confessed, “… I have seen things that one does not describe for fear of making people doubt one’s intelligence … but still I have seen them.”

According to Herodotus, ancient Egyptian priests spoke of a long-standing custom of the first builders of ancient Memphis creating underground rooms. Interestingly, enormous voids were uncovered during a survey at Giza in 1993, confirming these claims.

A newspaper item titled “Mystery Tunnel in Sphinx” verified reports suggesting the existence of enormous chambers, “Workers repairing the ailing Sphinx have discovered an ancient passage leading deep into the body of the mysterious monument.

“The Giza Antiquities chief, Mr. Zahi Hawass, said there was no dispute the tunnel was very old.”

“However, what is puzzling is: who built the passage? Why? Moreover, where does it lead …?

“Mr. Hawass said he had no plans to remove the stones blocking the entrance. The secret tunnel burrows into the northern side of the Sphinx, about halfway between the Sphinx’s outstretched paws and its tail.”

After a decade-long clearance project, astonishing stories emerged in 1935. The presence of the lands beneath Giza was described in an article published the same year by Hamilton M. Wright.

Despite considerable evidence establishing their existence, Egyptian officials continue to deny this fact, as well as many other discoveries.

The article read, “… We have discovered a subway used by the ancient Egyptians of 5000 years ago. It passes beneath the causeway leading between the second Pyramid and the Sphinx. It provides a means of passing under the causeway from the Cheops Pyramid to the Pyramid of Chephren [Khephren]. From this subway, we have unearthed a series of shafts leading down more than 125 feet, with roomy courts and side chambers.”

The huge underground chambers of Giza are extraordinarily well recorded, despite the fact that only a few individuals in the world are aware of their existence. For example, between the Temple of the “Solar-men” on the plateau and the Temple of the Sphinx in the Giza Valley, media sources from the 1930’s described subterranean chambers and corridors.

Four gigantic vertical holes, each about eight feet square, leading into inner chambers through solid limestone were discovered in the middle between the Great Sphinx and the Great Pyramid.

“… It is called ‘Campbell’s Tomb’ on the Masonic and Rosicrucian plans, and ‘that shaft complex,’ said Dr. Selim Hassan, ‘ended in a spacious room, in the center of which was another shaft that descended to a roomy court flanked with seven side chambers.'”

According to stories, the secret rooms contained 18-foot-high basalt and granite sealed sarcophagi.

Dr. Selim Hassan, who was exploring the area in 1935, wrote, “… We are hoping to find some monuments of importance after clearing out this water. The total depth of these series of shafts is more than 40 meters or more than 125 feet … In the course of clearing the southern part of the subway, there was found a very fine head of a statue which is very expressive in every detail of the face.“

Prehistoric Accounts, Enoch, And The Chapel Of Offerings

Dr. Selim Hassan also reported the discovery of three inner and outer courts, as well as a room known as the “Chapel of Offerings,” built into a large rock outcrop between Campbell’s Tomb and the Great Pyramid.

According to reports, the chapel’s central pillars are three magnificent vertical pillars arranged in a triangle pattern. The pillars are crucial elements in the report because their presence is thought to be documented in the Bible.

Even before he authored the Torah, it is thought that Ezra, the initiated Torah scribe, was aware of the passages and enormous caverns beneath Giza.

In an article published on July 7, 1935, the Sunday Express reported on the discovery of “sophisticated moving machines” at Giza and a previously unknown subterranean metropolis.

Despite substantial ancient records indicating the existence of massive tunnels, chambers, and corridors beneath Giza, Egyptian authorities have long denied the existence of these, as well as a number of other astonishing Egyptian finds.

According to reports, the now-inaccessible underground city may be reached by stairs cut into solid rock leading down to the cavern system beneath the Nile’s bedrock from inside the Sphinx (but also other parts). The vast, intricate underground structure beneath the Giza Plateau stretches eastward, leading to Cairo.

The following assertion was stated in a 1972 article:

“No one should pay any attention to the preposterous claims in regard to the interior of the Great Pyramid or the presumed passageways and unexcavated temples and halls beneath the sand in the Pyramid district made by those who are as associated with the so-called, secret cults or mystery societies of Egypt and the Orient.

These things exist only in the minds of those who seek to attract the seekers for mystery, and the more we deny the existence of these things, the more the public is led to suspect that we are deliberately trying to hide that which constitutes one of the great secrets of Egypt.

It is better for us to ignore all of these claims than merely deny them. All of our excavations in the territory of the Pyramid have failed to reveal any underground passageways or halls, temples, grottos , or anything of the kind except the one temple adjoining the Sphinx.”

Historical documents detail the massive quantity of excavations carried out during the twentieth century, including astounding, mind-boggling findings that were kept hidden from the public eye.

As we have discussed in previous articles, there is a specific and strict pattern in today’s society where only certain information is released to the public, while the majority is kept hidden, almost as if there is a secret level of censorship in place, specifically designed to protect parts of mankind’s history from prying eyes.
