Petra is more than « El Khazneh »
As « El Khazneh », many other tombs are side by side in the ancient city of Petra.
The whole city of Petra is spread out on an aera of 40 km2 (15 square miles).
The city of Petra was located on the caravan road between Egypt, Syria, South Arabia and the Mediterranean sea.
When the city was under Nabataean control, therer were more than 25 000 inhabitants.
After having walked up the 800 steps of a rocky stair, you get to « El Deir ».
Its name « El Deir », which means monastery in Arabic, comes from the use made by Christians thereafter.
