Photographer's Note

There are over one thousand burial monuments in Petra and several hundred others in the other burial cities. Most of these were for family and tribal units. Thus the tombs could have contained tens of thousands of people.

This tomb is probably of a rich family that lived once in Petra.

Please see the natural colors that add to the beauty of the tomb.
