Thutmose III erected two obelisks in Karnak. Thutmose gave more attention to the city of Karnak than other cities; Thutmose III was the one who rebuilt the hyposty hall of Thutmose I who was his grandfather. He also built Pylon VI, which was schrine for the bark of God Amun. The tekhen waty known as unique obelisk was erected until it was raised by Thutmose IV thirty five years later. It was then brought to Rome and is now known as the Lateran Obelisk. Another obelisk was erected by the Christian Roman Emperor Theodosius I in the Hippodrome of Constantinople. Karnak is one the most visited area in Egypt even though only ruined temples and buildings are seen there but so rich in history and mystery.
