|Description ||Senusert I Obelisk at Mataria in the East of Cairo.
The obelisk belonged to the On sun temple, otherwise know as Heliopolis to the Greeks and Romans.
The Obelisk's "Twin" is the Famous Cleopatra's Needle in London.
There are other artifacts and statues in the little park which attest to the existance of the once major temple.
This site is not in most of the tourist guides to Egypt or Cairo.|
