Rising out of the ruins of the Temple of Serapeum, this 100 feet tall column is an important albeit a bit disappointing Egyptian sight. Even though there is not much to see or do here, this granite column is bound to catch your attention. The sphinxes surrounding the column add a mystic aura to the sight. You can pair it with the Catacombs of Kom ash Suqqafa which is in the vicinity. Pay a small fee to check out the underground tombs while you’re here.
