Information About Cheops ( Khufu Pharaoh )


Khufu Pharaoh is the second king of the Fourth Dynasty in ancient Egypt. When King Khufu Pharaoh was born, he was living inside the palace of his father, King Sneferu, in Dahshur, to the south of the Giza pyramids. In this area, King Sneferu built two pyramids, one of which is located in the north of Dahshur and is called the Northern Pyramid or the Red Pyramid.

The reason for this name is that the workers who built the pyramid left many writings in red on the pyramid, so the people called it this name. The pyramid of King Sneferu is the greatest pyramid in Egypt. And he built another pyramid next to it, known as the Curved Pyramid or the Southern Pyramid.

It is believed that the engineer who built this pyramid built it at an angle of 45 and then to 43, so the pyramid was bent and became called the Curved Pyramid. Khufu Pharaoh took power after the death of his father, Sneferu. Under the name (Khanm Khawaf Li), which means the god Khnum who protects me.

He is from the village of (Manat Khufu), meaning (the nurse of Khufu), which is the town of Bani Hassan currently. Expeditions were sent to Wadi Maghara to bring turquoise. Where they found his name and a picture representing him falling on the head of a person with a fighting pin. He has a single statue of ivory found in Abydos.

His name is engraved on the throne chair. The statue is five centimeters long. It is now in the Egyptian Museum. He ruled according to the Turin papyrus about twenty-three years.

- One piece of stone in the ceiling of King Khufu Pharaoh's chamber, weighing 70 tons of granite, about the weight of a railway locomotive.

- The height of the Great Pyramid is about 149.4 meters, as a skyscraper of 148 floors, which raises the debate about how these pyramids were designed, which reveals that scientists in the era of the pharaohs had a secret and special scientific method to cancel the Earth’s gravity in a certain area, which means that any weight becomes like "The Feather," according to Dr. Mostafa Mahmoud.

- From the amazing calculations, the ratio of the circumference of the Great Pyramid divided by the height of the pyramid equals 3.14, also in the chambers of King Khufu Pharaoh, the same ratio is 3.14, the sarcophagus of the king is also 3.14, and this is not a coincidence, in design and engineering, and this is also a secret of the pharaohs.

- The height of the pyramid is 149.4 meters, and the distance between the Earth and the sun is 149.4 million kilometers... Is this also a coincidence?

- The unit of measurement in the pyramid is the "hierarchical inch", it turns out that it is approximately equal to the "English inch".
