Photo of the Walled Obelisk, Istanbul in Istanbul, Turkey

This photo shows the Walled Obelisk in the Hippodrome of Constantinople in Istanbul. It's also called the Constantine Obelisk, after Constantine VII who had it restored in the tenth century. It looks like it's been restored relatively recently too: other photos show extensive damage from people climbing it over the years. This Turkish landmark features in the game Assassin's Creed: Revelations, which was released in 2011.
