POTD: Karnak Obelisks

From 2019 11 23 Luxor

Today's photo-of-the-day is from Karnak Temple in Luxor, Egypt. The two upright obelisks were erected by Thutmose I (reign c. 1520 - 1492 BCE) and Hatshepsut (1479-1458 BCE). I don't know the story of the third obelisk lying flat on the ground. Something about erectile dysfunction, I'm sure.
