The walk until you get to the Treasury is long and hot, depending on the time of the year you go. Suddenly you see this phenomenal and large-standing edifice in front of you. It looks untouched by the elements and is amazing to behold! Not to miss!

The best time to go and see the Treasury and all its detail is early morning, By doing so, you it is not as hot as well as less crowded. The light also hits the treasury until lunchtime. Do go and walk right up as when they rebuilt the steps they found tombs in front of the Treasury which have... More

The moment the Treasury said hi and emerged in front of my eyes was one of those very emotional moments in my life- yep- just like seeing Persepolis- Pyramids- Great Wall- Taj Mahal etc ( the list goes on).....I smiled at the splendid sight since after years of wanting to see her, I've finally ticked off one of the many...

Do take time to explore this beautiful heritage and historical site. Just awesome. It's one of the most elaborate temples in the ancient Arab Nabatean Kingdom city of Petra, this structure was carved out of a sandstone rock face. The treasury was built by the Arab Nabateans, coinciding with the time of the Hellenistic and Roman Empires and so has... More

Having seen many pictures of this edifice and having watched various travel journals, I knew I had to visit Petra. Descending the SIQ I could sense my anticipation and excitement were mounting as we neared the end of the canyon and then WOW--there it was in all its glory--the Treasury right before my eyes. I made it!! Definitely worth the... More

Petra is stunning. I had a very weird feeling when i was standing in front of the Treasury, something i experienced before at the pyramids of Cairo and the Great Wall of China. You just stand there and can't take your eyes off this beautiful, amazing structure and you feel like you're in a different era. Everybody should visit Petra... More

The Treasury is undoubtedly a site to behold. About a 30 minute walk from the entrance to Petra, be sure to wear comfortable shoes & clothes that can withstand the heat. Go early!!! The site opens at 6:30 & you must go then to avoid the massive crowds & heat of the afternoon. You can take a horse part way... More

The suspense is all part of the magic.... walking for a couple of miles through the Canyon and then you get your first glimpse of The Treasury through a gap in the cliffs... finally, turning the corner to see the full facade of The Treasury. The best time to visit is between 9 and 11 am when it is bathed... More

There is no wonder why the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade picked this venue for filming. The Treasury is "over the top" in beauty. The opportunity for photography or just standing in amazement while viewing this attraction is unique and rivaled by only the most scenic antiquities in the world.
