The second largest Giza Pyramid, Chepron, will be reopened to the public in mid-July after nearly a year of renovation.

Workers cleaned up graffiti, mended cracks and installed new lighting and ventilation systems.

Three other tombs, from the fourth dynasty, will also be opened to the public for the first time since their discovery around 50 years ago.

This is the pyramid Chepron, named after the King whose tomb it became.

The latest restoration work took nearly a year to complete but now the pyramid will be open to the public again.

A ventilation system was put in to relieve the ancient structure of built-up humidity, the result of the breathing of thousands of visitors every day.

The humidity inside the pyramid crystallised into a thick layer of salt that caused cracks to spread.

Egypt’s Culture Minister Farouk Hosni will attend the opening ceremony alongside Zahi Hawas, Director of Giza Plateau.

“The Pyramid of Chepron was closed for one year, we did inside some important work such as cleaning the salt, changing the electricity system, restoring some of the cracks inside the pyramid and installing a new ventilation system to the pyramid. The pyramid will be open to the public in July and also we will close the third pyramid because we do a rotation system by closing two pyramids and closing one pyramid a year.”

Three other tombs, from the fourth dynasty, will also be opened for the public on the same day for the first time since their first discovery around 50 years ago.

Visitors to the pyramids will get a chance to see them in their full splendour.

“I’m very excited and that they can have the opportunity to go in and see that would be a wonderful thing. But it’s a tremendous experience just to be here to see the magnificence of this isn’t that what it’s all about. It’s wonderful.”

The first tomb, whose walls bear coloured paintings belongs to Eymery, who was a priest of the famous king Cheop.

What signifies this tomb is that the paintings its walls bear depict how Egyptians used to produce wine.

The second tomb is called Neferbauptah, after the son of Eymery.

The third tomb belongs to Duaenre of the fourth dynasty.

  1. Han tenido frisos los pasadizos internos de la piramide, por lo que observo , como fueron profanadas, se destruyeron o se llevaron los frisos, eso lo que ocurrio realmente con las piramides.
    Ademas los pasadizos han sido amplios y no como actualmente ocurre que uno tiene que caminar por pasadizos estrechos y bajos de altura( uno camina, creo por unos conductos de ventilacion).

    1. The Pyramid of Cheops – The True Purpose and Destination
    The time and the geographical landscape for the construction of the Pyramid of Cheops were selected by the extraterrestrials.
    l. The Pyramid of Cheops was built before the Noah's cataclysm (biblical great flood) by the extraterrestrials who, in the geometric form of the pyramid, they were notifying the extraterrestrial civilizations a deadly risk awaiting them when they descend on Earth because Earth will recognize them as non-own children and she will destroy them.
    Patriarch Enoch (ancestor of Noah), who lived through the flood of Noah and his events, reports that the extraterrestrials discovered a technology that made them go unnoticed by Mother Earth because they had their bodies covered by flames that did not cause harm and came out of their mouths and from their eyes and this proves that they were wearing a special space suit. And when they were living indoors, the house was made of crystal, from which flames jumped from all sides.
    The Earth's waters consist of five pyramid-based square-shaped molecules. We find this in the geometric shape of the pyramid. It is square and represents the four molecules of water, and the fifth pyramid molecule is the top of the pyramid, so our planet's water consists of five pyramid-shaped square-shaped molecules.
    In the stellar space, a different astral landscape sees and bombs every solar system, and it also identifies a different molecular arrangement that space travelers need to know to avoid their destruction, which is why the extraterrestrial civilizations probably build on every planet containing water a stone geometric structure that brings to the knowledge of the extraterrestrials the arrangement and composition of the waters of the planet.
