Amazingly, the ruins of this 6th or 8th century church were not discovered until the 1990s.

As with all Petra carvings, the time of year and time of day determine the view you get of the carvings--whether they stand out sharply or fade in the sunlight will determine your view and photographs. When you stop and think about what you are...More

I have visited it together with the other monuments around Petra. Yet the place would be worth visiting by itself.

Of all the places you can visit at the Petra site, this is the only one I saw that had mosaics and they were very nice. There is also a baptismal font. Worth a visit if you are not really pressed for time

Excellent interpretation signs. Amazing mosaics. Beautiful baptismal area. Definitely worth the trek slightly off main trail to see it. You get a great view of stadium and gateway from above

Another of the fantastic carvings at Petra that should not be missed. There really is such a lot to see there. Allow yourself plenty of time.

Walked up there for a few pictures and were slightly disappointed about the area. The church remains are not well kept and not much to look at.

It's a bit of a walk from the tombs but worth the visit to see these ancient mosaics. It incredible that they were able to create such beauty back then.

Maybe in another place this would be 5 stars, but this is Petra. While the floor work is great, this even isn't even the best mosaic you see in Jordan. If you have the time and energy, take a look, but there is better stuff...More
