Obelisque de Louxor was donated by Egypt and placed at the Place de la Concorde. This Obelisk of Luxor is about 3,000 year of age. One of the must-see spot in Paris.

The Egyptian Obelisque de Louxor is clearly visible on the Champs-Elysees in Paris when walking by the Louvre. Exquisitely carved amd about 3,000 years old one of a pair originally sitting at the temple of Luxor in Egypt. A gift to Paris.
