    Corinthian Tomb

    The Corinthian Tomb is one of the Royal Tombs. It is quite similar to the Treasury in the structure and its façade is very ornate.
    Awfully this tomb is damaged by the wind and water erosion, but the color of the sandstone is wonderful.

    Corinthian Tomb - Petra

    Just to the left of the Silk Tomb you'll find the Corinthian Tomb. Unfortunately it is very worn but you can see that it is very similar in design to the Treasury and is a most impressive and ornate tomb.

    Near the Silk Tomb there is the Corinthian Tomb. It's very deteriorated due weather conditions. By the way it's a fantastic monuments. The upper part of the tomb remember the Treasury ,instead the lower part of the tomb it's in Nabataean style. A very very nice monuments!!!!!

    The Corinthian Tomb

    The Corinthian Tomb sit about 100m from the Urn Tomb on the Street of Facades. It is very similar to the famed Al Khazneh tomb but not nearly so well preserved. This is sad because of its magnificent setting on the cliff face. The tomb is noted for its blend of Nabataean and Roman design. Like many of the structures at Petra, the original intent of the tomb is not certain.

    Another majestic tomb, part of the Royal Tombs, with a similar structure to the Treasury, but much worse preserved.It has several chambers.

    A more distant photo of the Corinthian Tomb sitting at the base of the dominating Jebel Khubtha. It is easy to see why Petra was lost in time to the outside world for so many centuries.

    The Corinthian Tomb is very worn, but if you stop to look at it, it is very ornate and similar to the Treasury.

    Another of the Kings Tombs is the Corinthian Tomb, it along from the Urn Tomb.

    Sadly it has not stood the test of time as well as the Urm and many of the other Tombs have
