Unfinished Obelisk

not found

The Unfinished Obelisk is located in the southern part of the Egyptian quarries, and it is one of the most important tourist attractions in Aswan, where the longest Egyptian obelisks ever extend on the ground at the site of its establishment, to be a witness to the accuracy and ability of the Egyptian manufacturer in dealing with giant granite stones, and it is likely that this obelisk was carved during the reign of Queen Hatshepsut, as most obelisks were created during her era, but a crack appeared in the obelisk body, which led to the cessation of its completion to remain a relic on the ground.

Visitors can see many animal and bird carvings on the obelisk walls and take lots of memorial photos.
