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.

One of Napoleon's stolen treasures from Egypt, this ancient tower sits in the middle of a traffic circle. Lots of noise and pollution, maybe not a suitable place for a piece of history?

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
