Cleopatra's Needle :: Visitors' Map of London :: A-Z Maps


Cleopatra's Needle

An Egyptian obelisk which, about 3,500 years ago, stood in front of the Temple of the Sun at Heliopolis. When it was being towed to England in 1877, this 'Needle', 68½ feet high and weighing 180 tons, had to be abandoned in the Bay of Biscay during a storm. Its sister column is sited in Central Park, New York. The hieroglyphics record praises of Thothmes III and victories of Rameses the Great.
