"Cleopatra's Needle is the popular name for each of three Ancient Egyptian obelisks re-erected in London, Paris, and New York City during the nineteenth century. The London and New York ones are a pair, while the Paris one comes from a different original site where its twin remains. Although the needles are genuine Ancient Egyptian obelisks, they are somewhat misnamed as they have no particular connection with Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt, and were already over a thousand years old in her lifetime.

They were originally erected in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis (ANNU, ON) on the orders of Thutmose III, around 1450 BC. The material of which they were cut is granite, brought from the quarries of Aswan, near the first cataract of the Nile. The inscriptions were added about 200 years later by Ramesses II to commemorate his military victories. The obelisks were moved to Alexandria and set up in the Caesareum — a temple built by Cleopatra in honor of Mark Antony — by the Romans in 12 BC, during the reign of Augustus, but were toppled some time later."-wiki

Today from Zahi Hawass

Since1880 a beautiful obelisk commemorating King Thutmose III has stood in Central Park in New York City. This obelisk is one of a pair - the other one currently stands in Westminster in London.

It has recently been brought to my attention that this incredibly valuable monument has been severely weathered over the past century and that no efforts have been made to conserve it. Because one of the main focuses of my tenure as Secretary General has been the conservation and protection of Egyptian antiquities, I feel it necessary that I fight for the restoration of this obelisk. Today I sent a letter to the president of the Central Park Conservancy and the Mayor of New York City asking for their assistance in caring for this artifact. I would like to share it with all of you:
"I write to you as someone who shares a mutual interest in conserving precious historical treasures for future generations. I applaud the efforts of the City of New York and the Central Park Conservancy in restoring this beautiful space, but I would like to draw your attention to a monument that I, and many others, believe have been overlooked in the park.
I am sure you are well aware of the obelisk of Thutmose III, referred to as “Cleopatra’s Needle,” that has resided in Central Park since 1880. I am glad that this monument has become such an integral part of New York City, but I am dismayed at the lack of care and attention that it has been given. Recent photographs that I have received show the severe damage that has been done to the obelisk, particularly to the hieroglyphic text, which in places has been completely worn away. I have a duty to protect all Egyptian monuments whether they are inside or outside of Egypt. If the Central Park Conservancy and the City of New York cannot properly care for this obelisk, I will take the necessary steps to bring this precious artifact home and save it from ruin.

There are at so many of them taken or should I say stone away from Egypt...8 in Rome Alone (I feel sorry for the Thieves...How dare they Raid the Tomb of Osiris?...

I will check out the open glyph, It seems like a nice place to start...I will use it side by side with my "Book of Coming Forth".

They are Unique because they are no longer housed in Egypt.

Search online for a program called open glyph, I had to download a lib program first but after that you'll be rocking...

Thanks..You can give a a crash course in Hieroglyphs while you are at it...You mentioned four Sacred Ones, Are all the not all Sacred? And What makes these four Unique?

Thanks, I plan on doing blogs here on all 4 of the sacred pillars that were taken from Egypt. The ones resting in England, France, and Italy seem to be the most important ones. Last I checked the wiki page had them all listed and they matched up with a Obelisk book I have here at home.

As for the term Namaste, I am sure there are a few different possible choices, here is what my Open Glyph spit out... It should be SeKaRa, however open glyph claims different. I will check what Sir Budge has when I find the time later...

Wow...thats amazing Meri-Ka means Loved Soul.. Thanks for outlining the fact that the Apron was worn by the Pharaoh, I have been looking at the garment lately and wonderful why the edge was at an angle. I had no Idea it was an Apron...It all makes sense now.

I have been researching obelisks lately and trying to compile an accurate list of all the Obelisks taken from put together the Members of Osiris.

If you have this information please make it available to us here, I would like to cross check with the one I compiled. Cheers

Do you know an Egyptian Equivalent for Namaste?

True meaning of the name America, Meri-Ka... It's meaning is Loved Soul.

If one studies the name Amerigo and why we supposedly used him on the map, you will find out that the makeR of the map studied Egyptian Hieroglyphs among many other Egyptian things. There is little doubt he was a Mason.

They know what they're doing! Did you know that King Menes is on the Supreme Court building representing the man that manifested the first civilization on Earth (Ta). Most of the founding fathers were Masonic Brothers and followed the traditions of Solomon, a Egyptian King disguised as a Hebrew king. This Obelisk belonged to Thutmose III, he was Barak in the Ta-n-akh...

Only one of the Temple of On Obelisks still remains in it's spot.
