One of the most important historic places in the long trek of Petra, this place has a lot of significance other than the famous treasury and the monastery.
A little bit of climbing is required to reach here which makes people reluctant to go inside and enjoy the ancient beauty.

Definitely a place worth knowing and it will be helpful if you have a guide with you. Or you can come prepared with some research online for Obelisk Tomb and all the remaining significant places on the trail in Petra.

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.
