Man Discovers Tunnel Leading To Pyramids in His Back Yard

A Giza resident was casually digging in his garden when he found a legendary causeway leading right up the Pyramid of Khufu.

Many a thing may be found in one's garden. A swing perhaps, maybe a lovely arrangement of daffodils or some large terracotta vases. Very rarely does one find an ancient mythical tunnel leading to The Great Pyramids of Giza. It's only happened to us like, twice before, masalan.

According to Ahram.org, this has happened once again as an Egyptian citizen named Nagy was illegally digging in his backyard when he found a tunnel leading to the Pyramid of Khufu, the oldest and largest of the three.

Nagy, who resides in the El Haraneya village, near the Giza Plateau, dug 33 feet beneath his house before he found the corridor, made from stone blocks. Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities sent archaeologists to the scene, and a committee confirmed the passage to be the pyramid's legendary causeway.

The funny thing is archaeologists have been in search for this tunnel for decades. It had been mentioned in the Histories by the Greek Herodotus, who claims to have visited it in the fifth century B.C. Herodotus wrote that the passage was enclosed and covered in reliefs, but before Nagy's excavation, only small remnants of the causeway had been found.

The Khufu pyramid complex is known to have connected to an undiscovered temple near the Nile River. Thanks to the new discovery, archaeologists believe the temple may be buried beneath the village of Nazlet el-Samman.
