What's inside the Pyramids of Giza?

Pass through the treasure of Khufu and explore, What is inside the Pyramids of Giza? Come upon a passageway that descended into the heart of the structure.

Back to the passageway you will notice an open space in the ceiling which leads to a high-roofed, ascending passageway. This became known as the "Grand Gallery."
