Legend has it tbat the devil resides in Petra
Gary, another great photo! I’m visiting Petra tomorrow… so excited!
Keep the following in mind while you are walking around: The Flintstones.
Jetlag must have got to whoever captioned this as a monastery…. It isn’t a monastery, and has never been one. It’s the so-called Treasury, a thoroughly pagan building of uncertain function, very likely a temple.
No. This is called the Monastery. The Treasury is a totally separate building, built in a slot canyon at the entrance to Petra.
Gary, you’re quite right — I was much too hasty! Sorry!!
