Ra’s symbol, royalty, and connection.

Many graveyards, including those from Ancient Egypt, have obelisks. Obelisks were the sun god Ra’s solidified rays. They symbolized the Sun God’s residence. As a symbol of royalty, persons in eighteenth-century England desired to be buried with an obelisk on their grave. The obelisk later came to symbolize a link between heaven and earth, as well as the living and the dead.
