... as the most impressive features. There is also and older Roman temple at one end. The ruins of Petra have been caused by earthquakes and this temple in particular can be seen full of fallen arches and masonry.
You can climb up a level in the centre of Petra wher you can go inside a tomb and look at the facade. This part of Petra also affords beautiful views of the layout.

We walked the additional 1 km through the Siq, which abruptly ends and "spills" you out at the historic Treasury building. We were exceedingly fortunate, too, in that we arrived during the one-hour a day when sunlight hits the Treasury. The crowds ...
