The Unfinished Obelisk
Of the biggest constructions that never saw the light of day was the colossal obelisk of Hatshepsut which was created between 1508 BC and 1458 BC to stand at the great Karnak temple but unfortunately cracked during construction.
The most unique temple ever to be created in the Ptolemaic era of ancient Egypt is the mesmerizing Philea temple which was built between 380-362 BC to be the worship center for Isis the deity of motherhood and healing. What makes Philae special is the amazing wall painting revealing the myth of Osiris.
