Hello Dune,

I'm with Skatha on this.
The Great Pyramid of Giza's interior is actually very simple in design.
Essentially, there are two sloping passages (the Descending and the Ascending - I'm combining the AP and Grand Gallery), four horizontal passages (the Subterranean, the Blind, the Queen’s Chamber and the Antechamber horizontals), three rectangular chambers (one with a gabled roof) and a narrow vertical shaft (the Well Shaft).
Skatha has mentioned already Djoser’s very complex pyramid, and I add Menkaure’s slightly less complex pyramid.

I should perhaps mention that it has been suggested that some of the tunnels under Djoser’s pyramid are the handiwork of tomb robbers.

Regards,

MJT



So many questions.
So few answers - and not one of them mine.
