After early breakfast

It's good to do the visit after early breakfast. Because of the wither and also for doing photos. Many years ago you can go inside but now not.

The Treasury is well known because it is the main sight when you walk into Petra. It is fascinating and a real old valuable monument. Check my Shot. Enjoy your time, don't stay there more than 30 minutes, cz there is a lot to see after passing by Al-Khazna.

It's quite a walk through the Siq which twist and turns and then suddenly you glimpse the Treasury full of excitement . It's a wonderful sight . Ignore the hawkers with bangles and trinkets and don't let them spoil this moment. The Treasury is very dramatic and a bustle of activity as it probably was thousands of years ago. We... More

This is the first place you'll see after emerging from between the rocks on the walk in. It's beautiful! No one was annoying hassling us and we were able to take lots of photos. There is a walk you can do to get views from above which unfortunately we missed as it isn't well sign posted or anything.

The first glimpse of the Treasury takes your breath away. This site is definitely worth the hike! I'd go back to the Treasury and bring my mom and aunt, but I'm not too sure about the hike up to the Monastery...lol

A tiny glimpse from the Siq is that you need to rush to see the Treasury. There are plenty of camels and donkeys to take pictures with or take a trip from there. Please be considerate and let them have a few JD.
