The Great Fallen Stele


What makes this monument so very outstanding is that it is the largest and heaviest stele existing in the world and one of the largest ever made in history. It is believed to have fallen and broken during its erection process and now lies shattered on the ground of the main terrace, broken into three massive and other smaller pieces.
