More amazing facades carved into the rock. Lovely walk between the Treasury and Royal Tombs. Keep watching on both sides of the trail. On the way out you will probably notice things that you missed on the way in.

A site deserving of better excavation and protection, deserving of better respect as to why it's there. Respect from the curators of Petra, but more especially the blind tourists who lack respect for the history and reverence of the dead.
