Unfinished Obelisk

The Unfinished Obelisk

The Unfinished Obelisk, the unfinished obelisk is the largest known ancient obelisk, located in the northern region of the stone quarries of ancient Egypt in Aswan, Egypt. It is unknown which pharaoh created this structure. It is nearly one third larger than any ancient Egyptian obelisk ever erected. If finished it would have measured around 42 meters (approximately 138 feet) and would have weighed nearly 1150 tons.
