Unfinished Obelisk: In Aswan, one finds the quarries from the Rosengranite, from which many statues and cult objects were made in ancient Egyptian buildings. In the northern part of the quarries there is a half-finished obelisk of 4 * 4 ‘meters and a length of more than 41 meters. A long crack in the stone was probably the reason for the demolition of the works. In the event of its completion, the largest obelisk of antiquity with a weight of well over 1000 tons would have originated.
We recommend the visit 1 hour. All in all, you can plan for an excursion from Aswan about 1.5 hours.
