The first sight visitors see upon emerging from the 1.5 kilometer-long
Siq is the Treasury (Arabic: al-Khazneh), the most magnificent of
Petra's sights. One of the most elegant remains of the ancient world,
the Treasury is carved out of solid rock and stands over 40 meters
The Treasury was probably constructed in the 1st century BC. As its design has no precedent in Petra, it is thought that it was carved by Near-Eastern Hellenistic architects.
