*Khazne al-Firaun*

Petra/Jordan, the capitol city of ancient Nabatea, is for me one of the most exciting places you can visit.

If you visit the rock city of the Nabateans, after crossing the Siq (a 1.5 km long gorge) you will inevitably encounter "The Treasury of the Pharaoh", as the Bedouin call the building.

In fact, the approximately 40 m high and carved from bare rock magnificent building was one of many rock tombs.
