assuming they made it through the booby traps

It was a treasury, not a temple, AFAIK.

Is there a reason for this? A tradition of some kind? Or just looks nice for the night?


TheAirNomad11

They actually do it pretty often I think. When I went to Petra we spent a whole day there and also went the night before. They had tons of candles and had a little musical performance and stuff. It was really cool and I would highly recommend!

Sounds good. One of the places I’d like to see, so I’ll hopefully catch it

What does the inside of this place look like? Is it one big room?


TheAirNomad11

There actually isn't an inside, it's just a big wall that was carved really cool. It is part of a big archeological park that has other carvings and lots of caves and things which are all also very cool.

Ok that makes sense now. Thank you! I watched the Nat Geo episode on Disney+ but it wasn’t clear.


Confusedandreticent

I seem to remember there’s only the facade, is that right? I wonder what’s inside, if it just terminates past the doorway into a stone wall.


TheAirNomad11

Yep it is a little disappointing there isn't an inside. But it is part of a giant national park with other massive similar structures and some cool caves. [The Monastery](https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b7/The_Monastery%2C_Petra%2C_Jordan8.jpg) is IMO just as cool as The Treasury, which is the one you usually see pictures of. You could easily spend a few full days exploring the entire area and it is well worth it.

Did the power go out? Didn't they pay their electricity bill?
