I don't think it was moved, I think when it was found it was left where it was with a few approprate embellishments such as the kneeling statue.

I looked at it from the building viewpoint as a booby-trap fanatic where sometimes you have to make do with what you have. They start building a straight shot and run into the star Map. Sadow didn't want it destroyed or moved, so he added the two additional arms after installing the acid trap etc locking the keys in the far right one, etc. You figure, which arm is the most important, the heavily defended one where you have to face Terentateks, find the keys, then use them? Of the one with a relatively simple puzzle?

If you check the layouts of the actual tombs of the Pharoahs, you will discover a lot of misdirection was used.
