There are a number of mythological references to this mysterious hall, which is believed to be a library buried somewhere in Egypt, one possibility including the undergrounds of the enigmatic Sphinx of Giza, which oversees the Giza Pyramids. Providing this huge underground library was discovered, it could change history and the origin of the Ancient Egyptian Civilization forever.
It is believed that the Hall of Records not only holds the history of the Ancient Egyptians recorded on ancient papyrus scrolls, but also the history and the location of the lost continent of Atlantis. The Egyptian Hall of Records has the same significance as the Great Library of Alexandria, which holds the history of the ancient Greek civilization.
However, views on the Hall of Records are divided with mainstream scholars strongly asserting that no evidence is found that indicates that the Hall of Records exists, and, on the other hand, scientists like Robert Schoch and Thomas Dobec, who believe that the large library is likely located under the Sphinx.
Now, we also need to mention an important fact concerning the Egyptian government, which together with American archaeologists have blocked any investigations around or underneath the Sphinx, a fact that was clearly exposed in the book Message of the Sphinx by Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval.
Opinions on who built the Hall of Records are also divided. Some believe that it was built by the ancient Egyptians, while others think that the Hall was actually built by a much older ancient civilization preceding the Ancient Egyptian.
But, what if the Hall of Records was actually located somewhere in Egypt and not underneath the Sphinx?
A while ago, an enormous underground library was discovered in Egypt, but the finding was suppressed by mainstream archaeologists and scholars. Although only a few people know of its existence, it can easily be considered as one of the greatest discoveries of Ancient Egypt, but also one of the most significant findings of the century.
Is the Lost Hall of Records finally found?
The existence of the ‘underground library’ was first mentioned by Herodotus and Strabo who had visited and recorded the legendary labyrinth before it disappeared from the history of humanity.
Herodotus was the first to mention the Hall of Records:
“This I have actually seen, a work beyond words. For if anyone put together the buildings of the Greeks and display of their labours, they would seem lesser in both effort and expense to this labyrinth. Even the pyramids are beyond words, and each was equal to many and mighty works of the Greeks. Yet the labyrinth surpasses even the pyramids.” Herodotus (‘Histories’, Book, II, 148)
According to writing by Herodotus I the IV century BC: the labyrinth was “situated a little above the lake of Moiris and nearly opposite to that which is called the City of Crocodiles” (‘Histories’, Book, II, 148).
“It has twelve courts covered in, with gates facing one another, six upon the North side and six upon the South, joining on one to another, and the same wall surrounds them all outside; and there are in it two kinds of chambers, the one kind below the ground and the other above upon these, three thousand in number, of each kind fifteen hundred. The upper set of chambers we ourselves saw […]”
This underground library could actually be what is referred to as the Hall of Records. In 2008, a team of Belgian and Egyptian researchers discovered an underground temple consisting of over 3,000 rooms filled with incredible hieroglyphs and paintings. This mysterious structure is located at Hawara, less than 100 kilometres from Cairo, in the vicinity of the Pyramid of Amenemhat III. But, the finding did not receive due media coverage. The results of the expedition were published in 2008 shortly in the scientific journal of the NRIAG, and the results of the research were exchanged in a public lecture at the University of Ghent.
This was followed by a quick suppression of the discovery by the Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (Egypt), who stopped all further communications about the discovery due to Egyptian National Security sanctions.
In 2010, a website, Labyrinth of Egypt, was opened in order to make the discovery public. But, despite the fact that researchers have confirmed the existence of the underground complex, further excavations are needed for more precise data. Everything publicized so far points to the fact that the underground Labyrinth could provide answers to various historical mysteries as well as the ancient Egyptian civilization.
