Who was buried in the Egyptian pyramids?
pharaohs,kings,queens and more mostly the famous people
The Egyptians built the pyramids to house their Pharaohs in the afterlife. Many people who weren't a pharaoh, like important people in Egyptian history, were buried along with the pharaohs. Oftentimes, Pharaohs were buried with trinkets and food and wine because they believed that when their spirit left their bodies they took the possessions with them. as for the Mayans and every other civilization that constructed pyramids, I do not know why. I'm guessing that…
It was the belief of the Egyptian Pharaohs that if they were buried with the proper religious ceremony in pyramids with their treasures, not only would they go to heaven (or the Egyptian equivalent of heaven) but their treasures would go to heaven with them, and they would therefore be wealthy in the afterlife, as they were in life.
No mummy has ever been officially discovered in a Pyramid. There are separate buildings that house mummies and these are called mastabas. And the Pharaohs were buried mostly in special places like the valley of the kings which is in the Egyptian dessert. It is only a theory that the pyramids have anything to do with the afterlife or burial. We do not know what the Pyramids were built for.
