Visit of Al Khazneh or The Treasury at Petra

As you come to the end of this beautiful ravine, a very narrow opening offers a peephole to one of the most spectacular sites in Petra - the treasury. Carved out of the side of the sandstone mountain face probably in the first century BC, scholars debate as to it's actual function.
