The Djinn Blocks - earliest primitive private tombs

Petra, Jordan

These are the first monuments seen as you go through the wide entrance to the site.

Cut into the rock, "the Spirits" were probably erected in the 1st century BC.

They were possibly also used in connection with the water supply managed by the Nabateans.
