    Det er da helt overvældende.
    Hvad mon de to rækker huller i hver side har været til? Stillads?
    Det er jo mere et billedskæreri end egentlig en bygning. Men under alle omstændigheder fantastisk.

      Hullerne menes at være brugt til stilladser. Og ja, det er en mageløst sted. De har alle enten været brugt til grave eller som beboelse/fælles bygninger. I dette tilfælde har anlægget været brugt til til gravsted for en nabatæisk konge for ca 2000 år siden, Treasury= skatkammer navnet kommer fra en historie om en Pharao, der gemte sine skatte her …..
      Og undskyld mit langsommelige svar, jeg har lige været en tur i New York og omegn🙂

    It’s not just the architecture but the color of the stone that makes this place special.

    Hehe, we visited Petra and the day after we visited Little Petra. The small version was kind of disappointing after having seen the real deal…

    I love this series of shots in Petra, Jerash and Wadi Rum. I visited Jordan in 1995, with a so-so film camera, so you can imagine how bad my own photos are! Yours bring it back.🙂
