Jordan, Petra - The Treasury
I visited the ancient city of Petra in 1999, it is located in Jordan.
The Nabateers "build" this city in the dessert, all the temples and houses are carved in the soft rock.
When you have passed the Siq, the first temple you see is the Al-Khazneh Farun, or The Treasury.

I was there in 1998, a fantastic place well worth the visit. I can't rate it highly enough.

Just in case you think you may have seen this edifice before, think the end of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade"
