Serapeum of Saqqara mystery

  • 05 16, 2023

History of Serapeum of Saqqara

The Serapium Temple is a collection of tunnels, squads, and caves carved under the depths of the rocks of the Saqqara Plateau with a length of 400 meters that is a great destination included in our Egypt tours. How did the ancient Egyptian and how did he use technology and machines to dig such tunnels 5,000 years ago, which can only be carried out with drilling machines.

The Serapium has 26 huge coffins of elaborate granite that you will discover during Egypt day tours. The lid of the coffin weighs 30 tons and the same body of the coffin is 70 tons, which means that it needs nearly 500 men to move each coffin. The tunnels that you will see in our Egypt travel packages do not seek this number of workers to move these coffins inside. This destination is reached in Egyptian monuments that will amaze you, in our Cairo day tours, you will discover how great Egyptian pharaohs were.

Experience Egypt Luxury tours to discover Huge coffins, all made of high-strength rocks (red granite - black granite - basalt - winter - quartz), are rocks that can only be dealt with by diamond cutters and technology that exists only in modern warship factories. No one can sculpt them with primitive tools that were used in the era of dynasties (stones - copper - bronze - and then iron in late times) all cannot handle them at all with these tools, as well as refine, soften and under them with drawings in this way. All this amazing discovery will be more clear during Egypt Classic tours. Saqqara is located near Cairo so what do you think about taking a day tour in pyramids and Egyptian museums? This will complete your perfect historical tour in Egypt.

No one knows why these coffins were made, to whom, and why all the coffins were empty and closed when they were discovered except for only one coffin. When the archaeological mission tried to move the cover of the coffin with dozens of workers, they could not, then they used dynamite to open the coffin and found nothing inside the coffin.

No mummy or corpse of the calf was found in any coffin of the Apis calf of its manufacture, how and why it was made, why it is so large, and then in the end how they moved it into the corridors and narrow Serapium tunnels.

The catacombs of the Serapium in the summer find it cold and in the winter it is hot in which the tunnels pour 400 meters long engraved in the heart of the rock of the Saqqara plateau and not in the middle of the sand and the tunnel descends to it with a runway ladder and if you look at the tunnel map below you will find many branches.

There is a really neat place called Ben Ezra Synagogue | Coptic Cairo where you can have lots of fun doing different things.
