The Obelisk of Luxor built around 3.000 years ago was originally located at the front of the Temple of Luxor. It was donated by Egypt and currently located at the "Place de la Concorde".

Be sure to get close to see all the inscriptions on it. I came upon this as I was walking to the Louvre. If you are into photography, be sure to include the Eiffel Tower in the background to make a nice composition- sort of looking towards the West. I used my 24-70mm lens for the shot. Depending how close you get, the wider angle lens you need. But, there is plenty of space to walk back if you do not have a wide angle lens.

Its worth a look but nothing mind blowing. But the view looking up the Champs E. is worthwhile.
Also the square around it is great on Bastille day!Great military processions

The Obelisk is in the centre of the Place de la Concorde. It is one of Napoleon's campaign trophies, from Egypt. It's very tall. The Obelisk is several thousand years old, it's worth a look. By the way 'concorde'. means that we are all getting on peacefully together, or some such. .

This is an impressive statue. I would recommend you to research the history of it so you would know why it is so special.
