The ancient Egyptians used to bury Solar boats near their pharaoh's tombs in pits known as the solar pits because they believed that their sovereign needed means of transportation in the afterlife. Discovered in 1954 beside the pyramid of King Cheops, the biggest boat now is displayed inside the Solar Boat Museum and is open for visitors during the famous tour to Giza Pyramids with an extra ticket.
It took nearly ten years to re-install these ships, and some hieroglyphic inscriptions were found on the pits that contain the solar ships, where there is a group of names of workers who transported these stones and the name of King Chephren "Khafra".
The identity of these boats was not confirmed if they were solar boats or funerary boats that were used for the purpose of transporting King Khufu to his place of burial. The museum, located near the Pyramids of Giza, contains inside it the large solar boat and a group of tools that were used in its manufacture, in addition to the pits in which those contents were found.
The length of the boat is about forty-three and a half meters, and it was made of cedarwood, divided inside into a small room at the front of the ship, and another large separated between them and the first room a door that can be opened or closed, in addition to the small room dedicated to the captain, but from its roof, it depends on Three columns surrounded by thirty-six other columns, and finally, there are ten oars of length, about eight and a half meters.
