During the past few days, pages and accounts on social media circulated a post claiming that “Giza Pyramids In Egypt, it possesses miraculous advantages, including the proportionality of the length of the Great Pyramid with the distance from the earth to the sun, and that foods do not rot inside it.

There are also claims that the meat inside the pyramid does not rot and that the plants grow faster, and that the number of stones used in building the Great Pyramid is two million and 600 thousand stones.

“just superstition”

However, most of what was mentioned in this publication is “just myths”, according to what experts told AFP.

The height of the Great Pyramid is 146.5 meters, not 149.4 as claimed by publications that tried to make it commensurate with the average distance between the earth and the sun, according to Ali Abu Dashish, an expert in Egyptian antiquities and media advisor at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina.
