The first glimpse you have of Petra is the treasury as you come out of the george. What a sight!
This prepares you for the scale of things to come
I must say this is one of the coolest site anywhere in the world.....carved into the mountain side....this building is beautiful......I could go on, and on......
The Treasury is Petra's most famous site. And rightly so. After walking in the narrow siq, suddenly it appears with all its glory.
If you are still not convinced take a look that this picture. This is me in the front with my "towering" 2 meters.... and there is plenty of Treasury still above me :-)
Definitely the most well known spot in all of Petra (thank you Indiana Jones). It is also the first major piece of Petra that you will see after walking from the gate and through Al-Siq.
After walking the 2 kilometres along the spectacular siq, you come across with the Treasury. That first impression .... I think I won't forget it for the rest of my life.
After a walk of 1209 metres, after you have seen a camel caravan and many niches, suddenly appear the wonder of Petra: Al-Khazneh (The Treasury).
The sun is going down and you can see the shawdow is covering the trasury. I love this picture!
luckily we come back the next morning!
After a hole da in Petra it's beautiful to see the changes of the colors with sun! this phot was taken when thee was no sun in Tresoury.
This is the full view on the Treasury, made famous for the greater public by an Indiana Kones movie
What a breathtaking event, coming out of the siq and seeing the glorious Khazneh
As its the Treasury, its appropriate that a member of the Royal Jordanian Police Force stands guard at the entrance -:)
