In 1987 a Japanese team from Waseda University (Tokyo) under the direction of Sakuji Yoshimura carried out an electromagnetic survey of the Khufu Pyramid and the Sphinx and found several cavities and tunnels. Rare images of the Great Sphinx suggest that there are several intricate entrances.
The Great Sphinx of Giza has captured the imagination and interest of anyone who has seen it. Proudly guarding the Pyramids of Giza, this fascinating monument is undoubtedly one of the most mysterious ancient structures on the planet.
With a length of 73 meters and a height of 20 meters, the Great Sphinx of Giza holds the record for the largest monolithic statue on the planet’s surface.
But its beauty and mystery go far beyond its size.
If we take a look at the Sphinx today and compare it with extremely old and rare images of the monument when it was still covered in sand, we will notice numerous interesting details that point to the possibility of an existing underground world beneath it.
This ancient monument, which some authors argue is much older than the ancient Egyptian civilization, was discovered (almost completely covered in sand) in the year 1817, when the first modern archaeological excavation, led by Giovanni Battista Caviglia, succeeded in completely uncovering the chest. of the Sphinx.
It is precisely during this period that the most interesting images of the Great Sphinx were taken. These images depict numerous cavities, entrances, and what appear to be tunnels that many say lead below this majestic ancient monument.
Interestingly, in 1987 a Japanese team from Waseda University (Tokyo) under the direction of Sakuji Yoshimura carried out an electromagnetic survey of the Khufu Pyramid and the Sphinx.
The results were fascinating: number one. In the South of the Sphinx, the Japanese indicated the existence of an underground hole of 2.5 m. At 3 m.. And they found indications of a groove in the body of the Sphinx that extends under the Sphinx. Number 2. North of the Sphinx. The Japanese found another groove similar to the southern one, which may indicate that there may be a tunnel under the Sphinx connecting the southern and northern grooves. Number 3. In front of the two legs of the Sphinx. The Japanese found another hollow space of approximately 1 m. 2m. Beneath the surface. Once again, they believe it could extend below the Sphinx.
The conclusion of the Japanese work suggests that the Sphinx sanctuary contains more cavities below the Sphinx than previously known.
The survey results by Waseda University scientists were confirmed in 1991, when a team consisting of Thomas Dobecki and John Anthony West conducted a survey of the sphinx using seismic refraction, refractive tomography, and seismic reflection. . The researchers interpreted their data to indicate shallower subterranean weathering patterns to the rear and deeper erosion to the front, which they take to indicate that the back of the Sphinx and its trench were carved by Khafre much later than the front. . They interpret their data to also indicate subsurface cavities in front of the left foreleg and from the left foreleg backwards along the southern flank.
Various photos as well as data from the scientific study indicate that there is a strong possibility that there are shafts and passageways leading to unexplored chambers below the Sphinx. Rare images of the Sphinx show numerous anomalies that were “covered up” by later restorations.
There are images of the Sphinx showing a huge fissure at the top of the Sphinx’s hips, which many claim leads to the burial chamber.
According to secretthistoy.wikia.com, there is also documented evidence of a large rectangular entrance at the top of the hips on the back of the sphinx.
This entrance measured 1.2 meters x 60 centimeters in size and is mentioned in many reports from travelers who have visited the sphinx. This shaft and burial chamber to which it leads is thought to have been formed during Pharaonic times, to form a retrospective burial chamber, which some people accessed.
