He graduated from the School of Fine Arts in 1943 with a degree in Architecture and then received a master's degree in Egyptology from Cairo University. In 1954 El Mallakh discovered two pits just south of the Great Pyramids of Giza on Cairo's western outskirts, he found Cheops first boat, the oldest wooden relic of Ancient Egypt Kingdom.
El Mallakh maintained that a nearby pit contained another boat. His theory was that the two boats were to ferry Cheops soul on a perpetual circle through the heavens, one for day time one for night. Other Archeologists denied the pit but it was an American National Geographic society who discovered it which indeed held a boat.
