Petra facade


Carved façade at the Petra site in Jordan, 2010.

No, this is not the one made famous by the Indiana Jones movie.

    Which building is this? I have read that it was the Treasury in Petra that was used for the façade in the Indiana Jones movie?

    The ‘Treasury’ is the one used in the Indiana Jones movie. This is another similar looking façade – called the Monastery or Ad Deir – further into the vast site. It looks like the ‘Treasury’ but is in much better nick.
