Archaeological scientists are always searching for the world famous Egypt, known as the land of human civilizations and pyramids. Recently an ancient Sun temple was discovered, which was said to be about 4500 years old. There were indications about this temple that it may be one of the lost four Sun Temples of the Fifth Dynasty. At the same time, archaeologists working under an ancient temple (Great Tomb of Osiris) in the ancient Egyptian city of Taposiris Magna have discovered a 1300 meter long tunnel, which is possibly 2000 years old. .

University of San Domingo archaeologist Kathleen Martinez said that during the survey and excavation of the tunnel, a part of it was found submerged in the water of the Mediterranean Sea. According to archaeologists, a 4,800-foot-long tunnel found under the ancient city can lead to the long-lost tomb of the famous Queen Cleopatra.

More than 2000 years old Greco-Roman tunnel was discovered under Taposiris Magna. Situated on the northern coast of Egypt, 4,281 feet of cut stones have been found by the Dominican Archaeological Mission of Egypt. Taposiris Magna, a city founded by Pharaoh Ptolemy II Philadelphus between 280 and 270 BC, is located in what is now Alexandria, Egypt. It represented a great cultural and religious center in the past after Alexander the Great conquered Egypt and founded Alexandria in 332 BC.

Archaeologist Kathleen Martinez believes there is a 1 percent chance that Cleopatra and her lover Mark Antony may be buried there, given the tunnel leading up to it. Along with this, he also said that if the remains of the tomb of Queen Cleopatra, the last ruler of Egypt, are found, then it will be the biggest discovery of the 21st century. Martinez believes that Cleopatra planned to bury the two there after Mark Antony’s suicide.

In addition to the tunnel, a team led by Martinez found the heads of two Ptolemaic-era alabaster sculptures near the temple for the past 14 years. The excavations also found a rectangular block of limestone hidden beneath a sediment of clay and sand, as well as several ceramic jars and pots.
