Egyptian Pyramids closed in 2011 due to fear of a supposed Masonic ceremony


On 11 November 2011 the Egyptian Pyramids were closed due to fear of a supposed "Masonic ceremony." A Masonic concert was scheduled on the Plateau of Giza, near the Great Pyramid of Khufu. Officials in Cairo adopted a relatively bizarre decision by closing the Pyramids to avoid "the practice of Masonic rituals" and also to avoid the concert.


However in the closure process of the Egyptian pyramids were involved several institutions: Pharaonic Archaeology Department, Supreme Council of Antiquities and the Ministry of Interior. Several Egyptian organizations (including the Muslim Brotherhood) have protested and rejected the possibility of conducting any Masonic ritual within the pyramids. The Supreme Council of Antiquities and the Giza Governorate confirmed that the Masonic ceremony was canceled but that the Pyramids remain temporarily closed.
