Obelisk Tomb, Petra: 12 reviews and 18 photos
One of the first things you see on the way to the siq is the Obelisk Tomb, on left side of the first valley. Egyptian and helenistic elements are combined in this first majestic monument, excavated from the rocks. The monument has two different parts. The top section, with clear eqyptian influenced piramidal obelisks, and the low section, which is called "The Triclinium Tomb", because of the three seats that has inside the main chamber, which is coronated by a typical helenistic three side front.
Address: Petra, before entering the Siq
