It was originally located at the entrance to Luxor Temple, in Egypt.Two 3,300-year-old twin obelisks once marked the entrance to the Luxor Temple.

Sphinx towing the barge Louqsor ferrying the Louqsor Obelisk to France
In August 1832, the French paddle ship Sphinx sailed to Alexandria to rendezvous there with the barge Louqsor, which was to load the Luxor Obelisk and bring it to Paris. Sphinx then towed Louqsor back to France. The ships departed on 1 April 1833 and reached Toulon on 10 May. The ships arrived at Cherbourg on 12 August 1833.
The first obelisk arrived in Paris on December 21, 1833. Three years later, on October 25, 1836, King Louis-Philippe of France had it placed in the center of Place de la Concorde.
