Secret Chambers in Great Pyramid
I think it is high time that the Great Pyramid was simply dismantled block by block with modern cranes and moved to a layup field. The disassembly would answer all questions except perhaps the fine detail of original construction. I present a detailed method of construction in my unpublished manuscript that could be so used to build it using Bronze Age Technology in the available twenty years and on budget. Thus is see no mysteries been advanced or solved by not doing this.
Once done we can then re construct the pyramid as it was originally laid out including the making of fresh facing stones so that we see the pyramid as originally designed. The grounds them selves can be turned into a combination museum and hospitality venue and the overall complex can become a world cultural center drawing huge revenues that would ultimately recoup the investment.
I think that the job can be done in ten years or less using several cranes and plenty of rail and truck movement. Thousands would be employed preparing replacement stones and the like. In this way the destruction wrought by the removal of the facing stones a few centuries ago for the building of
can be undone. It would be worthy for
Islam to make this a great cultural Jihad to restore the damage done. Cairo
I suspect that it will take decades to pay it off, yet the site will then be a money earner for at least another five thousand years. Few investments can make that claim.
Great Pyramid has two secret chambers: French architect

Jean-Pierre Houdin -- who was rebuffed three years ago by Egypt in his appeal for a probe into how the Pyramid was built -- said 3-D simulation and data from a US egyptologist, Bob Brier, pointed to two secret chambers in the heart of the structure.
The rooms would have housed furniture for use in the afterlife by the pharaohKhufu, also known as Cheops in Greek, he told a press conference.
"I am convinced there are antechambers in this pyramid. What I want is to find them," he said.
In March 2007, Houdin advanced the theory that the Great Pyramid had been built inside-out using an internal spiral ramp, as opposed to an external ramp as had long been suggested.
He proposed mounting a joint expedition of Egyptian antiquities experts and French engineers, using infrared, radar and other non-invasive methods to check out the hypothesis.
The idea was nixed by

carry out thermal
imaging from outside the Pyramid to explore the theory, Houdin said. Quebec
Houdin said a pointer to the antechambers came from the existence of such rooms in the pyramid of Snefru, Khufu's father. It was possible a similar design was retained for the Great Pyramid.
In addition, blocks in the northern wall of the king's chamber in the Great Pyramid indicate an overlooked passage which led to the hypothesised chambers and also enabled the funeral party to exit, he added.
