Al Khazneh, Petra, Jordan


What can you expect:

The Al-Khazneh (The Treasury) in Petra, is one of the most elaborate temples. Petra is a city of the Nabatean Kingdom inhabited by the Arabs in ancient times. As with most of the other buildings in this ancient town, this structure was carved out of a sandstone rock face.

It is one of the most popular tourist attractions in both Jordan and the region. It became known as “Al-Khazneh”, or The Treasury, in the early 19th century by the area’s Bedouins as they had believed it contained treasures.

Unfortunately you cannot enter the Al Khazneh. There’s nothing to see. It is simply an empty chamber. The Nabataeans, who carved the traditional metropolis of Petra into the cliffs within the 1st century AD, had been far more targeted on the facade. But yes, it is worth to visit the Al-Khazneh.
