Cleopatra Needle-London Landmarks

More than 2000 years of old Cleopatra Needle gifted by Egypt to commemorate the victory of the Battle of the Nile and the Battle of Alexandria

Cleopatra Needle is more than 2,000 years old and it is located on the Thames Embankment close to the Embankment underground station. It was donated by Egyptian ruler Muhammad Ali in 1819 to commemorate the victory of the Battle of the Nile and the Battle of Alexandria, both related with French Revolutionary Wars. It arrived in Britain very late in 1877.

This is one of three ancient-Egyptian obelisks re-erected in London, New York and Paris.
