About sight: Unfinished Obelisk

There are quarries on the outskirts of the city. It was a source of granite in ancient Egypt. Tourists are often brought to see the «Unfinished Obelisk». It could be the largest obelisk in Egypt. The weight of this 42-meter statue reached up to a thousand tons. But unfortunately, this lump of rock was never finished as it cracked in many places even while it was being processed. So, if you haven’t enough time you can quite skip the trip.
