The name says it all. The Unfinished Obelisk is 42 meters in
length and is probably the heaviest one ever cut in Ancient
Egypt weighing nearly 1100 tons. It lies in a granite quarry in
Work on the obelisk started during the reign of Queen
Hatshepsut – 18th Dynasty, and then, after discovering severe
cracks in the rocks, the obelisk was abandoned.
