Famous Haunted Places: The Giza Pyramids--Egypt

Updated on June 1, 2013

by Christine B.

There has always been a great deal of mystery surrounding the Giza Pyramids. Who made them and why and how were they constructed? Why do they align with the stars in Orion’s Belt? What is the curse that descends upon anyone who disturbs the Pharaohs who are buried inside and nearby the pyramids?

But, did you know that the pyramids are also haunted?

Howard Carter was an archeologist and Egyptologist who was born in England in 1874. He was best known as being the man who discovered the tomb of King Tut—the 14th century Egyptian boy pharaoh, Tutankhamen. The tomb was said to be cursed, and that anyone who disturbed it would die a horrible death. Many of the people who were with Carter when the tomb was opened did indeed die from bizarre circumstances, but not Carter. He died peacefully many years after the tomb had been opened at the age of sixty-four in 1939.

Historians believe Carter evaded the curse, but perhaps he didn’t. Several employees and visitors at the pyramid site have reported seeing a man dressed in 19th century attire roaming around the pyramids. Some reported sightings also include two small children with the man. The witnesses say that he seems to be searching for something . . . possibly another tomb.

Mysterious orb figures have also been seen. The figures seem to be in the shape of a pharaoh and they come from the pyramids and head south toward the Valley of the Kings.

These sightings could be connected to stories of the ghost of Pharaoh Khufu, who is believed to come out of his pyramid at midnight dressed in traditional Egyptian Armor. Local residents report seeing the former Egyptian king in their homes. The ancient specter tells them to “get out” before he vanishes. Maybe the pharaoh doesn’t like seeing modern housing developments built so close to his tomb and “scared ground.”

There is no doubt that the site of the Giza Pyramids is a mysterious place. It is also not surprising that the area is haunted by beings with a strong connection to the location.
