Thousands of college students flock to Miami Beach for Spring Break
The chamber is 98 feet (30 meters) long and 26 feet (eight meters) wide. It features a narrow aisle leading to a main dome next to the pyramid-shaped tomb
The tomb was found near a motorway situated about 3,300 feet (1,000 metres) west of the Sinian Grove in Zhengzhou
The chamber, which is 98 feet (30 meters) long and 26 feet (eight meters) wide, was built in a west-east position with the entrance facing the east. It features a narrow aisle leading to a main dome next to the pyramid-shaped tomb.
A resident was apparently impressed by the findings.
He told a local reporter: 'This is truly magical. I've never seen anything like this. It looks like an Egyptian pyramid.'
Further analysis is expected to reveal how old the tomb is, who the owner was and why it was built in this particular shape
A worker who guards the excavation site told the same reporter that the tomb could be more than 2,000 years old and that the dig had been going on for more than a month.
While the public are stunned by China's very own 'mini pyramid', experts said it's not uncommon to see circular-shaped tombs with a pointed roof in the region.
