Abstract: Pyramid has been variously studied for its mystical preservative, healing and curative effects. The power of the pyramids has been much talked about in Egypt and the great pyramids as the wonders of the world. They are mentioned as çikhariëis and gopurams used in temples in Indian tradition. It is associated with Chakras and the elevation of the human mind to the super-consciousness levels. Although several studies have been undertaken on pyramids, much of their effects remain a mystery. In the study, attempt has been made as to scientifically analyze the preservative capability of the pyramids. Pyramids made out of natural materials as wood and other synthetic materials as fiberglass have been used to understand the effect. The shape of the pyramids was square and octagon of different sizes. Milk kept under the pyramids for a period of 14 days was analyzed. All the samples in the pyramids have shown various levels of inhibition of bacterial growth, compared with the control sample. The samples in the wooden pyramids have shown the maximum preservative capability in comparison with the samples in the fiberglass pyramids. The samples in the octagon pyramid have shown better performance than that of square pyramids. The study could be the beginning of many more rigorous studies to establish the finding. All can imagine the tremendous implications of the study.
