According to mainstream academia, the Great Pyramid at Giza was a Tomb for the 4th dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu.

This standard Theory on the purpose of the Great Pyramid has been questioned for the following reasons:

i) the Great Pyramid does not contain any of the things an Egyptian tomb would ordinarily contain such as extravagant artifacts, wall art and an elaborate coffin, The Giza Pyramid Power Plant.

ii) the size, design and exterior view of the finished pyramid were worthy of a God, but its interior is too basic to be the resting place of a God, The Giza Pyramid Power Plant.

iii) While its argued that the mummified remains of King Khufu were once located inside the King’s Chamber, the only object ever found is an empty granite sarcophagus, The Giza Pyramid Power Plant.

iv) there are no inscriptions whatsoever inside the Kings chamber that would suggest it as being a Tomb.

The Alternative View

Due to the above problems with classifying the Giza Pyramids as a simple Tomb, many theories have emerged suggesting that the Great Pyramid was some type of energy device. 

One of the first people to propose that the Great Pyramid was a machine, was Edward J Kunkel in his 1973 book, Pharaoh’s Pump which proposed that the Great Pyramid worked like a hydraulic ram pump, The Giza Pyramid Power Plant.

John Cadman on the other hand suggested that the Pyramid could work as a vibrational pulse generator, whilst Engineer Chris Dunn proposed that the Pyramid could be viewed as a microwave laser.

Dunn proposes that the Egyptians would have used the microwave energy to power machines, The Giza Pyramid Power Plant.

In 2007, a Biochemical Engineer named Peter Grand also proposed that the Pyramid could potentially be an AC Generator which had been perfectly insulated by the original white polished limestone casing over the Pyramid. 

Its interesting to note that the Pyramids are geographically located over underground rivers and aquifers, and it has also been proven that thousands of years ago the Nile River ran straight past the Pyramids.

The Giza Pyramid Power Plant

This would have provided a power source to power reactions in the Pyramid, and potentially producing electromagnetic power that would be projected from the top of the Pyramid and harnessed in a similar manner to Tesla’s Tower.

The Great Pyramid is also located at the exact point which magnifies the natural electromagnetic forces on the Planet, and there is an electromagnetic field at the bottom of the Pyramid which may have risen up the Pyramid as power was generated. 

Last but not least, it has also been argued that the Pyramid was a source of Nuclear Power driven by Hydroelectric forces.


The current mainstream explanation for the purpose of the Great Pyramid does not adequately explain why the Giza Pyramid should be regarded as a Tomb when its interior is completely anomalous compared to the Tombs of other Pharaohs.

Given its design, location and dimensions, its no suprise that arguments suggesting a more practical use for the Pyramid in Ancient Times have emerged.

Whilst these are far from conclusive, exploring and perhaps integrating these various Theories may ultimately lead us to a solution that adequately explains the enigma of the Great Pyramid.
