The unfinished obelisk:
Aswan was the source of ancient Egypt’s finest granite used to make statues and embellish temples, pyramids, and obelisks.
The large unfinished obelisk in the Northern Quarries has provided valuable insight into how these monuments were created, although the full construction process is still not entirely clear.
