Photographer's Note

On the first of the picture you can see "rests" of the great temple in petra's site.
In 1921 an archeologist named Bachman published a survey of the city of Petra, which soon became a standard that was used by archeologists for several decades. On the south side hill of the Colonnade Street Bachman mapped out the ruins of a large building, complete with columns. He named it the Great Temple. And so, the building has always been known as the Great Temple, although more and more historians are wondering if this was actually a temple, or if it was the Nabataean seat of government.
On the last part of the picture, you can see royal Tombs, that nabateans diged in the moutain.

- Hey you little nabatean, you have nothing to do ?
- No
- ... then dig the moutain !
