The obelisk at the Place de la Concorde was originally used in front of the Luxor Temple in Egypt. In 1836, the Governor of Egypt gave it to France as a gift. The obelisk is 23 meters high and weighs 230 tons. The tower is carved out of a whole piece of pink granite and is covered with Egyptian hieroglyphs, praising the great achievements of the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses II. The obelisk was transported to France via the Nile, Mediterranean, Atlantic, and Seine for three years, and it was erected in the center of the Place de la Concorde in another three years. There were more than 50 obelisks in Egypt, but only a few are left, and they have been given to other countries. Dozens of them are distributed in Europe.
In addition to the pyramids, the most distinctive symbol of ancient Egypt is the obelisk (also called the obelisk). The sun is one of the most important deities in ancient Egypt. The long shape of the obelisk represents the sun's beam. The top of the tower is shaped like a pyramid, and hieroglyphs are engraved on all sides of the stele.
