The 169 meter-high Washington Monument, designed in the form of an Egyptian obelisk, was built on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to commemorate George Washington, the first American president. Construction works commenced in 1848 and lasted four decades until it was officially opened on 9 October 1888.
