    Breathtaking, worth the long walk (unless you took a horse carriage). Simply a place you need to see before you die.

    Fantastic! If you go later in the day, it was very quite. If you can, check out Petra by night. It's on selected days during the week, but well worth seeing. It gives you a totally different feel when it is all lit by candle light, stunning.

    This tomb is the most beautiful, admired and legendary monument in Petra, carved in a Hellenistic style in the 1st century BC as a royal tomb. Rumors are that Bodouins believed pirates hid ancient pharoanic treasures in the tholos (giant stone urn) of the tomb/temple, hence the strcutured gained its popular name, the “Treasury”.

Description

Venture into the distant, mysterious past in Al Khazneh, the famed Treasury of Petra, a structure unlike any other on Earth that has endured since the time of Christ. Carved in grand Hellenistic style straight into the sandstone rock face, the Treasury still remains something of an enigma. Whether it served as a storage place for pirated treasure, or as an actual storage facility for the wealth of a kingdom is still unknown. Featured prominently in Hollywood films, including the Indiana Jones series, the Treasury is filled with ancient burial chambers, urns, and stunning sculpture.
