The surprises and impressive structures just go on and on in Petra. The Obelisk Tomb is really impressive and a wonderful work of art amongst all the other treasures there.

there are horses running around this place all the time, and the road is sand, you better use a mask, otherwise you eat sand.

What a treat, Right at the start you come across this treasure on the left. Even before you start your trek off down the Sig. I did not know how extensive this place is. A must see if you do this because it's the closest and easiest. This place will knock your socks off.

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).
