King Ezana's Stele is the central obelisk still standing in the Northern Stelae Park (containing hundreds of smaller and less decored stelae) in the ancient city of Axum, in modern-day Ethiopia. This stele is probably the last erected one and the biggest of those remained unbroken. King Ezana's Stele stands 70 feet (21 m) tall, smaller than the fallen 108-foot (33 m) Great Stele and the better-known 79-foot (24 m), so-called, Obelisk of Axum (reassembled and unveiled on September 4, 2008). At its base, it is decorated with a false door, and apertures resembling windows on all sides.
