One of the most spectacular sights I've ever seen! Petra is literally carved out of the red sandstone hillsides.
The pictures of King Hussein I (d. 1999) and his son, the reigning monarch, King Abdullah II, are everywhere in Jordan.
The Treasury is one of the most spectacular sights in all of Petra. It stands dozens of metres tall in a dazzling red sandstone glimmer.
Little stands selling souvenirs are located throughout the site. Don't be tempted by the tourist prices - if you're interested, I have a cousin who runs a newly opened souvenir bazaar... let me take you, it's not far.
