About twenty thousand to one lakh workers would work to build a pyramid. No wonder that the Egyptian Pyramids have been named as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. We all know that the pyramids were initially built for the kings and prince to rest after death. The pyramids were filled with all the things that the king used during his life time.

The Egyptians believed, that the kings would use these items in their life after death. They had a strong faith in after life. The kings were mummified and they were kept inside these pyramids. Egyptians had mastered the art of mummification. It has been noted by the historians that the pyramids that were built in the later stages of Egyptian history were built in a hurry. They were not as detailed as the first few pyramids.

The Egyptian pyramids were a home to richness. There were a lot of gold and other precious gems that were kept inside the pyramids. If the pyramids were of a king then they were better made. This is exactly why many of the pyramids were destroyed by dacoits.

The Egyptian Pyramids need to be protected and taken care of. This is because the pyramids have been damaged a lot by sand storms and human attacks. We hope that the people of Egypt protect these spectacular structures with all their capacity. The pyramids have been damaged in spite of stories that vandalizing a pyramid can bring in bad luck and even death.

Meaning of Pyramid Symbol

We will now discuss the meaning of a pyramid symbol. The shape of a pyramid represents a primordial mound. This mound is what the Egyptians believed made the earth. The Pyramids were designed keeping the descending rays of the sun in mind. The Pyramids were polished and they would shine when seen from a long distance. Some of the pyramids were also named like the southern shining pyramid. Some religious belief was that the pyramids are like a resurrection machine. They were basically used to bring dead back to life.

The Structure

The Egyptians were very advanced in science and technology. The Egyptians believed, that the night sky was a dark area.  They also said that round this dark area the stars revolved at night. This night sky and the dark area was the way to the heavens. This is exactly why every pyramid had a shaft that extended from the burial chamber and went through the entire body of the pyramid.

Finally this shaft would point towards the dark part of the sky. This design was to ensure that the person resting in the pyramid rests in peace. It also ensured that the soul of the dead is taken directly to the heaven. This made the Egyptian Pyramids a mystical construction that had the magical ability to open the doors to the heavens.

The king resting inside the pyramid would be taken directly to the heaven where he would be meeting the gods directly. This was the most important spiritual importance of the Egyptian pyramids. Another interesting aspect about the Egyptian Pyramids is that most of them were built in the west bank of Nile.

This area was the area of the setting sun and was also considered to be the area of the dead. This is clearly mentioned in the Egyptian Mythology. This is exactly why this spot was mostly selected to make the Egyptian Pyramids.

A New Life

The Egyptian Pyramids were of this shape as the Egyptians believed that it was a very powerful symbol they also believed that these structures to give live to a body after a period of dormancy. The Egyptians did believe that death was not the end of life. Instead it was the way to a new life a new beginning.

The Egyptians were of the notion that the body always consists of a physical form and a soul which was called “ba”. The physical form would die but the soul would live on. At the time of death the body and soul would separate. However, eventually the body and the soul would meet again and a new life would form. This is exactly why they preserved the body of the dead. This ensured that the soul can get back the body whenever they want to.

The union would be more of a spiritual nature than of physical. This could happen at any point of time. The Egyptians though that bot soul and the body were eternal. They did not have any concept of time. This shows that the Egyptian pyramids were definitely a result of Egypt’s both technical and spiritual know how. No wonder they still fascinate the world with their mystery.


It is indeed interesting that the Egyptian Pyramids were built with such strong religious beliefs. They represented the culture and the essence of Egypt itself. I hope by now you have understood the spiritual connection of the pyramids and the death. We hope that these structures will be protected and in the future they will keep attracting tourists to the country of Egypt. We know a lot about the Egyptian pyramids today. However, there is still a lot more that is yet a mystery.
