Al Khazneh (“The Treasury”) is one of the most elaborate buildings in the ancient Jordanian city of Petra. As with most of the other buildings in this ancient town this structure was also carved out of a sandstone rock face. It has classical Greek-influenced architecture, and it is a popular tourist attraction. Petra is a historical and archaeological
city that is famous for its rock-cut architecture and water conduit system. Established possibly as early as 312 BC as the capital city of the Nabataeans, it is a symbol of Jordan as well as its most visited tourist attraction. Petra has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985.
