Petra.45 – The Blue Church
We’ll be showing you some Byzantine ruins today and tomorrow, still following more or less the sequence in which I saw and photographed things after I left the overlook above “The Treasury.” You can see why they call this the blue church :-). In two of the shots below you’ll see a modern tent-like rooftop, which covers what seems to be the main church – check the map and you’ll see these are just next to each other. Mosaics from beneath that roof coming tomorrow :-). In another shot, you’ll see the cliff face with the “Royal Tombs,” as in one of the photos I showed yesterday. I also mis-stated a bit yesterday: in the first photo below, you’ll see another ruin between these columns and the mountain — that’s also the Winged Lion Temple.
