    PETRA

    Petra

    Favorite thing: No site in Jordan captures the visitor's imagination and takes his breath away as dramatically as Petra. The amount of labour involved in carving the magnificent structures in the colourful soft rock boggles the mind.

    Al Keznah

    The Keznah or Treasury, Petra

    Favorite thing: When visiting Petra, you have to see the Treasury or "Al Keznah" in arab.
    Its almost impossible to miss this famous site in Petra, as its just on the end of the "Siq", a small canyon which builds the entrance to the Petra site.
    The Keznah is a ancient, nabatean tomb. His exterior looks beautiful. The entirior is only a rectangular room, without any ornaments.

    Fondest memory: Climb up the rocks opposite of the Keznah to have a nice view of the monument from above!

    Favorite thing: I stayed two nights at Wadi Musa. This town offered me this sunset as well as the call to prayer that came from the nearby mosques.

    Favorite thing: Once you have walked all the way to the Monastery & if you still have the energy a few minutes further walking up the rocks will take you to some fantastic views.

    The View from the High Place of Sacrifice

    by Blatherwick Written Aug 23, 2005
    The View from the High Place of Sacrifice

    Fondest memory: Looking down on the Street of Facades from the High Place of Sacrifice was just amazing. What was really funny is that a Bedouin couple was using the acoustics to talk to each other between cliffs.

    Petra Adventure

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Even though Petra is very save and people everywhere, it can be quite adventerous to explore the stony environment. Deep and narrow gorges and some steep pathes lead into the red mountains of Petra.

    THE SIQ

    The Siq

    Favorite thing: On each side of the dirt path, brilliantly coloured rock rises toward the sky. The closer you get to the Treasury, the more vivid the shades of red, orange and pink seem to become.
