Karnak Temple, Luxor: 180 reviews and 338 photos
These two obelisks are placed in small court next to the hypostile hall. The smaler and older one was erected in the time of Tuthmosis I and it is about 21 m high and weighs about 140 tons. The bigger one is 27 m tall and weighs 320 tons and it is the only remaining obelisk of Queen Hatshepsut. It is made from pink granite from Aswan in very short period of time. It remains a mistery how that was achived.
