This obelisk at the Karnak temple is so huge that it will amaze you when you stand next to it . The engineering involved to raise and erect it, and the structure standing without any support is marvellous.

It's part of Karnak temple near the sacred lake. Obelisk mean a soldier with a hand sign of maintaining silence as per my guide

The obelisk is covered with beautiful carvings. When you take the pic in the bright sun, you think you can't see the art on them, but it came out. Very dramatic against the dark blue sky

Inside Karnak Temple, these 2 obelisks certainly command attention. Good access all around gives an impressive view of these wonders

Both obelisks are amazing engineering monuments. It takes a while to realize what you are looking at and how old they are.

Amazing to see this and to think that it was quarried, carved and put in place 3000+ years ago. What a sight it must have been when the original gold tip was in place!

One of the few obelisks left in Egypt. Two are here at Karnak temple and the best preserved is Thut 1st. Great location and great for pictures!
