Petra.49 “The Monastery”

From the official map: “Ad Deir, or the Monastery, is one of the largest monuments in Petra measuring 47m wide by 48.3m high… [It] dates to the early 2nd century AD, during the reign of King Rabel II. The hall was later re-used as a Christian chapel and crosses were carved into the rear wall, this is how the structure got its name.”
