Temple to Ra

The Egyptians built obelisks because they thought they were sacred. Why, you ask? In the morning when the sun comes up the first rays shine on the pyramid shape on the top. So, the obelisks were thought to be sacred to Ra, the sun god. Other groups don't think they are important because the greek word for obelisk is meat skewer!
