“Wow, so ancient”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Don't miss it, and it is free to walk by. A granite monument from a millennia before Rome! Looks new even today.

“Wow and so quick and easy to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

It's right there in the Hippodrome, can't miss it. Amazing to realize that it was created in 1490 BC, brought here in 340 AD, and you can see it up close in the 21st century! No excuse missing it!

“Impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

A main site within the Hippodrome, the Obelisk is quite a site. I agree with other reviewers, it is quite a task to get a picture without other tourists in the photos. I still is worth seeing while in Istanbul.
