The pyramid of Cheops, as many know it as the Giant Pyramid in Giza has three chambers, with the king’s chamber located near the top. It is difficult to enter, after climbing the grand galley; one must crawl through a narrow opening to enter the king’s chamber. Upon entering one finds a smoothly polished granite lined chamber with an empty sarcophagus tomb near the center of the room.

The high walls are polished granite and there are air chambers on two sides of the room which are said to have pointed towards Venus at the time of the construction of the pyramid.

When a king passed, the coronation and ascension process were two similar but different ceremonies that is said to resemble masonic ceremonies of today. 

Performed at different times, the thought was to bring the soul of the deceased pharaoh into the body of the soon to be king.
