Byzantine Church Petra - Wadi Musa
Many of these sites blur into one honestly - the Byzantine church was good, but the best bit of Petra was climbing the 850 steps to the Monastery.
As with all Petra carvings, the time of year and time of day determine the view you get of the carvings--whether they stand out sharply or fade in the sunlight will determine your view and photographs.

The Great Temple Petra - Wadi Musa
It was a challenging hike from the treasury, but it was worthy, as we got some of the most amazing views as we approach the great temple.
The Great Temple is at the far end of the main "round" of buildings on the Petra site, and just before the long steep climb to The Monastery, so it's probably the furthest many go.
