The Unfinished Obelisk

The huge granite blocks that make up the Kings Chamber in the Great Pyramid, came from quarries 400 miles away - in Aswan. The largest obelisk in Egypt is on display there - laying on the ground. It was never taken out of the quarry because of a crack that developed on it.  This is popular tourist stop which allows travelers to see up close the amazing feats of stone technology the ancient Egyptians were capable of.
