Guardian's Giza

The Subterranean Chamber


In order to enter the pit, there is a descending passageway that is 345 feet long which terminates in a smaller 29 foot level passageway. As you enter the chamber you can see the modern barrier around the 11 foot deep shaft that is against the east wall of the chamber. Around back, on the south wall, is a grating covering another small passageway that leads to a dead end. The entire chamber has been carved out of the very bedrock that the pyramid rests upon. The first view shows the shaft surrounding by a grating, taken from the upper section. The second view, as you first enter the chamber and look to the right, shows the corner which, being carved out of the bedrock, has no seam:

Looking toward the west wall you can see the roughly hewn features of the pit.
