Petra. Jordan. Sweeping view of the legendary Monastery which is the most awe inspiring monument at ancient rose red city of Petra. Dating from the third century BC, the Monastery is hidden above the hills and at least 60 minutes climb from the ancient city’s centre. Carved into the side of a mountain, the Monastery’s timeless Hellenistic facade is similar in design to that of the Treasury, although far larger at 45 meters high and 50 meters wide. The vast rock carved city of Petra is the ancient home of the Kingdom of Nabataeans who settled here there more than two thousand years ago. It is a UNSECO world heritage listed site.
