The Treasury

This part of Petra is the most photographed, the most anticipated, and the pride and joy of Petra.  It is a beautiful monument!  It was carved in the 1st century BC as a tomb for an important Nabataean King.  It's facade is 30m wide and 43m high.  It is pretty spectacular up close and made me think about ancient peoples and how very different life is today.
