Holiday Snap #1 - The Monastry at Petra



I always share a photo or two, so here is the monastery at Petra, Jordan. Dating from the 1st century BC, it is not built but hewn out the rock, as are all the buildings in Petra (including the Treasury, the most famous of the Petra sights and known to all from the Indiana Jones movie). To get up here, you have to climb around 800 steps but it is worth it. You can read more about Petra on the Wikipedia page.

So did the British Museum purloined this too or is "London Daily Photo" going international?
