High Place of Sacrifice

3.9/5
19 Reviews
Historical Site
Recommended Sightseeing Time: 1 hour
Address: Petra - Wadi Musa, Jordan

What people are saying:

The Petra Altar... was built on a high wave. It was a place of worship in ancient times. Now it is basically eroded. Not to mention that no one will look at it. Below it, the caves are the royal tombs. Only the glorious history remains. These ruins are down.

    My favourite part of Petra

    A wonderful walk up the stairs to the top and then down through the valley including the most amazing tea stop on our holiday so far. The walk isn't easy but it's totally safe.

    Worth every step!

    It's a fairly vertiginous hike up but so worth it if only for the views. Get to the shack up there, buy a bottle of water and then settle down on one of the rugs at the cliff edge that overlooks the S...

    Nice panoramic view from the too

    A good escape from the busy roads and monuments. Less people take the steps up the place of sacrifice. Not bad for fit people but sure not all people can handle this. The view from top is spectacular....

    A 3 mile hike up including 400 steps but worth every step

    Whilst the site itself takes a bit of getting to most people will say it is worth it especially for the views and photo opportunities. The option of a different route back also makes it interesting.We...
