Cleopatra's Needle - Review

Cleopatra’s needle is an interesting sight. This is an ancient Egyptian Obelisk and even though it doesn’t exactly belong to Cleopatra’s reign, the name has made it pretty famous. It is one of the four “needles”, the others of which are present in New York, Paris and Luxor.

Recently, reinstated, the needle in London has many squarish engravings on it in the ancient Language. Two replicas of the Sphix have also been constructed near it in bronze. Tuthmosis, the kind from whose reign it belongs to has also been honoured in the engravings.

In the middle of a modern city you see this ancient structure that has weathered through time for so long. It is certainly a marvel and if nothing else it is something you should at least pass by and admire. It is quite literally a piece of Egypt in London.
