Photographer's Note

The experience of emerging from the Siq is one of those "wow" moments. The Treasury or Al-Khazneh is an astonishing piece of craftsmanship. Although carved out of sandstone to serve as a tomb for Nabataean King Aretas III, the Treasury derives its name from the story that an Egyptian pharaoh his his treasure in the urn in the middle of the second level.
