Monastery (Al Dayr)

Historical Site
Address: Petra - Wadi Musa, Jordan

What people are saying:

After all the hardships, he almost abolished his hands, feet and arms, and finally reached the top left corner of the map: the monastery-another monument of Petra. Built by the Nabataeans in the 1st century AD, it is about 45 meters high and 50 meters wide. The entrance gate is 8 meters high. It is a typical Nabataean architecture. The monastery is much taller than I thought at first, and the overall feeling is really that it is a monastery. At a glance, it is quite reasonable to say that this building is used as a monastery. The entire palace is the same as the Khazni Temple that has just passed by, and it is much more formal than those tombs dug in the red clay rock wall. Inlaid in a natural mountain, there are very formal hall gates, roofs, pillars, windows, and carvings. From a distance, you can know that it is a building and nothing else without any guessing. The overall feeling of the monastery is quite solemn. If there is no introduction or access to materials in advance, the first impression is that this is also a formal occasion for special purposes and activities in ancient Rome.
