Mysterious Portal Reportedly Found Near Great Pyramid, 1932 Explained

A mysterious portal was reportedly discovered by English archeologists during a dig in Egypt in 1932. A photo of a mysterious structure found in Egypt has been making its rounds on social media.

Last week, a photograph of an ancient stone object several meters high in the shape of a giant tablet was posted by the user Ven Garcia Ybanez Pj on the UFO-related Facebook group by the custom URL UFOdaily. The user said the photo was taken begin the 19th century that looks out of a movie.

The hoax photo has gained popularity as a result of a sensational description to attract attention. The post reached 2.1 thousand reactions (emotions) and nearly a thousand shares.

“It looks like something out of a fictional movie, or rather, brought from another dimension. Photo taken in 1903 by German archaeologists and military Uzbekistan/Central Asia,” said Ven Garcia Ybanez Pj, author of the post.

“That’s straight out of a science fiction movie!!! 👽🛸 Definitely some kind of Portal to another dimension, a doorway to other galaxys,” said Andrew Jon Barlow, Facebook group member.

Hoax photo

On June 21, 2020, the Garstang Museum of Archaeology posted the original photo on Facebook that showed the Horus votive tablet. This image shows the main altar in the temple of Amun at Meroë, located in Egypt.

In the 1910s, British archaeologist John Garstang made a number of excavations in Meroë, Egypt. From these excavations, he unearthed a great many treasures from ancient Egypt, including cemeteries and royal Nubian pyramids.

The earliest mention of the real photo can be found in the book “Meroë, the City of the Ethiopians : being an account of a first season’s excavations on the site” published by Clarendon Press in 1911 [page 41].

It was only a matter of time before someone took this idea and ran with it—and, in this case, that person was one Andrea Bonazzi. May 1st, 2021, artist Andrea Bonazzi started to post on Instagram the altered photo, posting the first version of what has now become a viral hoax that is sure to make any history or Egyptology buff crack up.

“A group of English archeologists discovered a complex set of solid granite structures, with intriguing highlights and coniform language. Hmm.. around the same time they found the stargate,” said a user, member of Telegram channel Majestic 12 Chat.

“Yes, this is one of my artworks, a Photoshop composition made with one of my own sculptures placed in a historical but modified background … I make sculptures and illustrations largely based on Horror, Fantasy, and Weird fiction, especially inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft,” said Andrea Bonazzi to, artist of the altered photo.

The post was published online on a Facebook group called “UFO, Aliens, Other Planets and Paranormal Activities“. Groups like this one just accept posts from hoaxers and disinformation sites, but this one appears to have been created just to spread hoaxes. There doesn’t seem to be any original content in the group—just lots of photos, videos, and links to different sites posting hoaxes. This group censors Astral Citizens by not allowing our posts in their group.

I really like this site so far! Thank you for all of your hard work! I look forward to telling my UFO experience when I get some time. Keep looking up!

@marshall469 Wow, thanks! I really appreciate your kind words. I’ve been working hard to get this site running smoothly for you guys, and it means a lot to hear that you’re enjoying it so far. And I can’t wait to hear about your UFO experience! You should post it in our UFOs section (in the forum section).

I closed my company and all my business activities (including all social networks except for Facebook) last week because I realized that Astral Citizens is growing but needed my full attention, they call this micro-focus. This was a difficult decision but for a good cause.

I created Astral Citizens because I wanted to create a place where people could feel safe and supported. I was tired of seeing how toxic social media can be, so I wanted to create a place where people can share their thoughts and feelings in an environment that’s free from judgement and hate.

I hope you have a great time on Astral Citizens!

Thanks again for the wonderful feedback!
