Theatre, Petra: 25 reviews and 42 photos


Walking to the left from the Kazneh to the Roman city, this is the first major monument you will see on your right.
It has been carved in the rock by the Nabataneans themselves at the beginning of the Christian time and was ready to welcome 3000 spectators. The Romans enlarged it later by demolishing a few tombs in the cliffs?
The picture has been taken from the stairs on the way to Djebel Al-Khubta.
