Right at the center of the city, this famous obelisk of Egypt is located. This 75 foot high monumental pillar is located at the most famous and largest square of Paris. According to history, this monument was erected in 1836 and was gifted by Viceroy of Egypt to King Charles. The primary reason behind the installation of this obelisk was to spread peace after the horrific situation the city faced during the French Revolution. Made of pink granite, this obelisk is surely an eye-catcher.
Spend some time to admire this beautiful monument which is an important landmark in the history of France.

The start of the Champs Elyse - a great monument. It is odd though that Egypt hasn't asked for it back as part of some repatriation of plundered antiquities. BTW, it is a long walk from here to the Arc de Triomphe!!
i walked past this quite a few times, and wondered about it. Very interesting relatively modern history But the ancient history of this stone I wish there was more information I walked along here and it was great to come upon it.
Very nice monolith t ohave golden pictures and characters on the black stone. Real Egytian art.
Incredible obelisk. Even though you might not be able to interpret the hieroglyphics take a moment to look at them and the different symbols. This is a very large obelisk and I appreciated how at the base it shows how it made it to Paris.
This may not do anything for some, but for me it was very humbling to stand beside a piece of ancient history.
