Exploring the Mystery Behind the Giant Coffin at Egypt’s Saqqara Serapeum Temple

At Egypt’s Saqqara Serapeum temple, there are giant square granite coffins weighing hundreds of tons that confuse world scientists.

The Saqqara Serapeum has been a constant source of speculation and mystery since its rediscovery in 1850. Even now, no theory can explain exactly how or why the more than 20 giant stone sarcophagi The giants are transported to this location and installed precisely into their grooves.

The official theory is that the site was used to bury Apis bulls, but archaeological findings show that there are many factors inconsistent with this belief.

Located northwest of the pyramid of Djoser, in Saqqara, is the Saqqara Serapeum temple. According to archaeologists, this is the burial place of Apis bulls, the embodiment of the god Ptah – the Egyptian god of creation and power. This cemetery located near Memphis (Egypt) is said to have been built by Ramses II around 1300 BC. Since its discovery in 1850, the Saqqara Serapeum has puzzled archaeologists and researchers, and the excavated tunnels have since become the subject of much debate. This majestic ancient maze contains more than 20 megalithic stone “boxes”, weighing from 70 to 100 tons…

For example, the size of these stone coffins was beyond the size of the bulls and this has led to a variety of questions as to whether it was done to provide more comfort to the bulls. ? If this is true, why not do the same for pharaohs  , who were buried in coffins that fit their bodies? Why did they make the Serapeum sarcophagus out of granite and not out of limestone, a material that is much easier to work with? And if the Serapeum is where the Apis bulls were buried, where are the mummified bulls?

Compare the size of a bull mummy (about 2.3 meters long) and a Serapeum sarcophagus based on Linant-Bey’s measurements.

Some have dismissed the theory that the Serapeum sarcophagus was used for a ceremonial burial, but if that wasn’t the case then what was it used for? That is the question asked by some Egyptologists…

Part of these megalithic boxes are 30-ton lids made from the same blocks of stone. When discovered, some of them had been opened with gunpowder, but inside these giant boxes were empty. Researchers don’t know what they were used for or how they were created thousands of years ago…

Over the centuries, there have been many reports of lights appearing in different shapes and for different periods of time on the ground just before, during, or after earthquakes. A recent case of earthquake flashes was reported in L’Aquilla, Italy in 2009, when it was hit by a 6.3 magnitude earthquake. Just before the earthquake, residents reported seeing lights above the city. This phenomenon has been analyzed in detail and about 1,000 people have been interviewed. The conclusion of the study is that the electrical charges released during the earthquake cause the light effect.

Interestingly, most of these boxes are made of pink granite, an extremely hard rock quarried about 800 km from Saqqara, while other boxes are made of an even harder material – diorite – is found even further away from Saqqara. The accuracy of the boxes is another feature that puzzles researchers or anyone who visits the site, with deviations recorded up to a thousandth of an inch.

Although this phenomenon has been known since ancient times, recent video surveillance (installed in pretty much every corner of the city) helps researchers analyze it. And several research groups have done so. A team at the University of San Jose led by Professor Freund compiled data from 65 different locations around the world where earthquake lighting was present. Extensive work has been done to analyze the data and the physics behind it. The results show that the earthquake light phenomenon is caused by the stress of granite materials in the soil. Theoretical and experimental verification were completed to support the results.

Therefore, many may wonder whether a similar light mechanism could have been used at the Serapeum in predynastic times. When granite coffins are subjected to mechanical stress, an electrical charge appears. The charges are usually dispersed toward the ground surface. When the charges reach the surface, they ionize air pockets above the ground and can light up the sky above Saqqara.

Therefore, at the present time, many people think the giant Serapeum coffin is used to create electric charge with pressure created inside by CO2 gas. The pressure exerted on the quartz crystals created an electrical charge on the surface of the coffin. Those charges are then dispersed from the ground toward the ground. The released charges ionize the air above Saqqara, causing the air to glow.
