A resident was probably very impressed by these discoveries. He gave statements to a local reporter that he found it really magical and he had never seen something like that. He also found it look like an Egyptian pyramid.

A guard of the excavation site stated to the same local reporter that the tomb could be over 2000 years old and for that reason, the digging process had been going one for over a month.
