The Monastery or Al-Dayr

22 days ago, 75 views
The Monastery or Al-Dayr is one of the largest monuments in the city of Petra, measuring 47 meters wide by 48.3 meters high. It was built with Khazna (The Treasure of Petra) as a model but in this case the bas-reliefs were replaced by spaces to house sculptures. It has a columned portico that extends across the front of the facade.
