Are there traps in temples?

In reality, there are no "traps" in the ancient temples and pyramids. Unfortunately, modern man are unaware of the "blueprint blueprints" for the ancient temples and pyramids. That's why they assumed it was a trap. The ancients built temples and pyramids with a specific purpose in mind and according to a "blueprint."

For example, the Great Pyramid at Giza was designed as a tomb for Pharaoh Khufu. It is estimated that it would have taken about 20,000 workers over five years to complete just the first phase of its construction. The entire project may have taken several decades to finish.

Modern scientists believe the builders of the Great Pyramid were slaves who were paid with meat and beer. They also believe the pyramid was used for human sacrifices. However, evidence of this practice has never been found.

Actually, there are many theories regarding the purpose of the Great Pyramid. Some researchers believe it was built as a calendar while others claim it was constructed as a microwave oven or something similar. But none of these theories have any basis in fact.

The truth is we will probably never know what the Great Pyramid was intended for. But whatever its original purpose might have been, it has been well-succesful at fulfilling its current one: as a monument to peace and remembrance.

Are there traps in ancient ruins?

So, to answer the question, "Did ancient people actually install traps in their tombs and temples to secure their treasure?" the answer is a loud yes.

In fact, trap doors and secret passages were common in ancient buildings all over the world. And while some of them may have been used for storage or shelter, others were designed specifically to hide treasure.

Here are just a few examples of ancient traps: hidden compartments and locks on doors or chests to prevent access unless you know the correct combination; spring-loaded pins that shoot out of the ground or onto spikes to block paths; and even poisonous gas that would be released if someone tried to enter through a doorway or window.

Nowadays, we think it's weird if someone hides anything valuable inside a door or box. But this is standard practice for an excavator who wants to make sure they're not going to end up with any old thing when they start digging. The archaeologist doesn't want to find something useful like a knife or a key, they want to find objects of value like gold or silver.

And since these valuable items were usually placed in sacred spaces, the archaeologist assumes that other people might have had interest in getting their hands on them too.

Are there tombs with traps?

The ancient Egyptian desert tombs of the Pharaohs are notorious for concealing sophisticated booby traps and curses to safeguard the wealth within from grave robbers. Many of these traps were never discovered by the archaeologists excavating the sites, who often relied on written records describing the contents of tombs for identification.

In fact, it is common practice for ancient Egyptians themselves to set traps in order to protect their treasures. Several hundred years before modern archaeologists began exploring Egypt's deserts, thieves had already done much of the work for them by setting many traps across the country. They used ropes to hang thieves inside the tomb, or else knives, swords, and other weapons were placed near the bones of a slain animal in order to scare off any potential intruders.

Some traps were quite simple, such as the one shown in this illustration, which was found inside a tomb in Thebes (modern-day Egypt). It consists of two large rocks that can be moved only with great effort by someone lying on the ground. When not in use, the rocks are kept against the wall of the tomb. This prevents anyone but the owner of the tomb from entering without his knowledge.

Other traps were more complex, such as the one shown here, which was found inside a tomb in Saqqara.
