Petra, JORDAN: The Lost City of Stone
Bab Al Siq was probably carved by the Nabataeans in the 1st century AD. It is an Obelisk Tomb that has three massive Djinn blocks, which are squared monuments carved out of the rock. Above the tomb are pyramids that is a symbolic representation of the five people buried there. An inscription written by “Abdomanchos” circa 40-70 AD indicates that the tomb was to be used for himself and his family.
AL Khazna, commonly known as the Treasury, is the most magnificent and grandiose façade of the city. It is believed to conceal the Pharoah’s treasure.
