The Unfinished Obelisk could have been one of the most interesting achievements of Queen Hatshepsut who ordered her workers to construct it to commemorate a person, event or to honor a god just like why obelisks were used to be built but unfortunately the project wasn’t completed as many cracks were discovered on it so it left since then till our current time in Aswan.
