Jordan: Petra – Royal Tombs

And finally, one of the most spectacular areas in Petra was the so-called Royal Tombs – 4 tombs carved out of an elevated sandstonecliff face facing the sun. The most incredible hues of red and orange and all lavishly decorated, the tombs stand literally shoulder to shoulder – Urn Tomb, Silk Tomb, Corinthian Tomb, Palace Tomb. Just mind boggling how these were constructed out of an absolutely sheer sandstone wall!
