7/48.- Petra, The Treasury


The Treasury, as most of the tombs in Petra, is carved out of the rock. Its facade is more than 40 meters high and 30 meters wide, and is decorated with Nabetaen mythological deities.

Its Arabic name, Al-Khaznhe (the Pharaoh's Treasury), makes reference to the myth that a treasure was hidden in the urn at the top of the building.
