Ancient Petra City (part3)

The Ad-Deir is a huge building, 50 m in width and 45 m in height. Judging by the crosses cut in its walls, sometime the temple served as a Christian church.

Not far from the monastery there are some observation platforms standing on which one can admire the beatiful view of the valley.

If you decide to visit Petra sometime, be ready for a great quantity of the small bedouins - souvenir sellers, begging for your money.

Some tourists try to save money and get to Petra without a ticket. But that doesn't work because there are special guards whose job is to check the tickets, catch people without them and simply keep order.

And that is how an alternative gorge looks. Very beautiful. The road is much longer, but it's really worth it.

Petra is opened from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sometimes it's closed at night and one has to buy an additional ticket to get there. All the road to the Treasury is beautifully decorated with paper flashes.
