The Obilisk is an Egyption influence added to the Nabataean archeticture because of trade. Nabatean traders travelled all overvthe ancient world. Therefore, they get influenced by various archetictural features from everywhere. The Obilisk itself represents the sperit ascending to heavens.

While hiking to Petra attractions this place one of the first point. Guide gave explanation. This was functioned as a dining room where feasts took place in honour of the dead. These structures are old and belong to the 1st century AD (25-75AD).

First Nabatean Archeological Ruins you saw in the road, The Siq, to the Treasure, Al Khazneh. Very friendly staff at the Visitor Center. The best time hours for a visit are early morning.

This is another highlight in Petra. It is right at the start of the trail so you can’t really miss it. Absolutely worth seeing.
