A wonderful place to see the cut out from rock. It's a tomb of the kings and is fantastic to visit. You'll see lots of bedouins and be prepared to bargain hard with them, if you want to use the camels for a picture, or donkey ride to take you 800 stairs above a hill. Must carry lots of water...

Try to get there early. The morning sunlight on this magnificent structure is spectacular. Also try to see the Monastery while you are there.

A must see in your lifetime. We went in March so it wasn't too over-run with tourists... Not sure how it is in other months. Really spectacular.

You walk for a while thru the canyons of the Siq. There was not a lot of sun that came down in to the canyon. All of a sudden we came upon the Treasury bathed in bright morning sunlight. It was amazing! It was early enough it wasn't that busy. When we came back later, the Treasury was in shadows.... More

I don't think we've come up with the word to described The Treasury. Stunning is an understatement. Looking at my past reviews I can't believed I didn't review The Treasury, so I'm doing it now. If you have the opportunity, please go and see it, you will not regret it regardless how much it cost, especially if you are already... More

At the end of the siq, the Treasury is stunning. What an incredible sight. Worth the walk. You will have lots of locals trying to get you to ride camels, but it is best at the end of the day when less people are there.

This is the building featured on all the brochures and postcards. Can't go inside anymore. Petra can feel out of the way but definitely worth it. Amazing how these buildings were carved out of the sandstone and are still so well preserved. Though I actually thought the Monastery was even better than the Treasury but it can be quite a... More
