Luxor Obelisk - Review
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.

Luxor Obelisk, Paris Reviews
Beautiful plaza with a rich history. Small park across street with metal lounge chairs for relaxing and viewing. Enjoyed the sunset :)
Beautiful obelisk at the Concorde public square west of the Tuliere Gardens. Was gifted to France by Egypt and the awesome story is that this obelisk was transported from Egypt to France in one finished piece! And apparently this transportation feat was in itself a huge improvisation from the techniques back then. The obelisk is indeed beautiful with scriptures of it's construction and transportation carved onto it.
Egyptian Obelisk stands in the main square of concorde. The Arcade Triomphe is situated right next to it. Love this entire street.
Great monument at the beginning of the Champs Elyse. It's a gift to France from Egypt. The obelisk is 3000 years old. It's a piece of Egypt in the middle of Paris.
was surprised to see so much Egyptian history in Paris, very cool to see
