The Treasury, or Al-Khaznah - wider shot
05-NOV-2009 Andrys Basten

The Treasury, or Al-Khaznah - wider shot

Petra, Jordan

It's sometimes spelled "Al-Khazneh" also.

Many photographers prefer it without people "in the way."
But, in its day, there were plenty of people.   And they were part of it.

Here's a reconstruction of the appearance of the Khazneh in Nabateaen times,
from the layout for temples and tombs and the Monastery at the top of the hill.
