"The Treasury," Petra.  The first "structure" encountered after emerging from the Siq into the Nabatean ruins at Petra.  Carved completely by hand from the rock, this structure was probably actually a tomb.  It was dubbed "the treasury" due to a rumor that the Pharoah's gold was hidden in the carved "urn" shape at the top of this facade.  © Rick Collier
