"Jordan's most famous monument" Top 5 Page for this destination Treasury - Al Khazneh Tip by TheWanderingCamel

Treasury - Al Khazneh, Petra: 76 reviews and 162 photos


The Khazneh, called the Treasury, is probably one of the best known monuments in the Middle East, and most certainly the most famous in Jordan! It is in a most remarkable state of preservation, being cut deep into the rock face and tucked away in a valley where wind and rain, not to mention flying sand, has little chance of penetrating. Try to arrange to see it in the morning, between about 9 and 11am, when the sun is shining on it.
