Arguably one of the greatest discoveries of Ancient Egypt, the underground Labyrinth has been found, confirmed, and suppressed from mainstream history.
WHY DOES IT REMAIN UNKNOWN?
So why does one of the world’s most interesting historical landmarks remain so vaguely known? This forgotten world of underground chambers has remained unexplored for centuries, but they could change the way we look at history.
The mysterious underground complex is believed to hold the secrets of mankind’s origin—and possibly even a sacred text from the lost civilization of Atlantis. It was described by authors like Strabo and Herodotus before the story disappeared.
“When one had entered the sacred enclosure, one found a temple surrounded by columns, 40 to each side, and this building had a roof made of a single stone, carved with panels and richly adorned with excellent paintings. It contained memorials of the homeland of each of the kings as well as of the temples and sacrifices carried out in it, all skillfully worked in paintings of the greatest beauty,” Herodotus wrote in the IV century BC.
The underground temple is believed to consist of over 3000 rooms, filled with hieroglyphs and paintings. In 2008, a group of researchers from Belgium and Egypt investigated the underground complex and was able to confirm the presence of an underground temple not far from Pyramid of Amenemhat III. Without a doubt, this is one of the most incredible discoveries in the history of Egypt, so why has it been tucked away from society?
After the discovery was made in 2008, the finding was suppressed by the Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (Egypt), who put a hold on all further communication about the discovery because of Egyptian National Security sanctions.
Historians hope to one day have the answers.
