6/48.- Petra, The Treasury


The Treasury, Known in Arabic as Al-Khazneh, is the top tourist attraction in Petra.

It was constructed as the tomb of a Nabatean King in the 1st century. Nabateans were a nomad tribe that settled down in this region around the second century BC, and made of Petra the capital of their empire. Their rule lasted till the Romans conquered this land at the beginning of the 2nd century AC.
