Photographer's Note

The Treasury or Al-Khazneh lies at the end of the mile-long crack call 'the Siq'. It is one of the most elaborate structures in Petra. It is called the Treasury because the legend goes that the Urn on top of the structure holds the ancient bandits' loot. Visiting it at night only enhances the mystical feeling of this structure.
