The Monastery is one of the buildings located in Petra, Jordan, which is the spectacular ancient city that is famous because all of the buildings were carved out of various cliff faces, which is very tedious and worthy of immense skill and patience. While the Treasury is generally known as the most impressive building of Petra, the Monastery features the same exquisite carving but displays much less ornamentation than the treasury.While it is called “the Monastery,” it was most likely a Nabatean temple.
