Petra - hiking up to the Monastery is well worth the effort
There is so much to see at Petra you could be forgiven for not getting to see the Monastery, but for those that make the effort it so rewarding. The Treasury near the entrance to the extensive site, is better known and was made famous in the Indiana Jones movie. However the Monastery is more complete, with better stone engravings and exotic archways. Standing at its entrance it is almost impossible to believe that it was built so many years ago, as it is so large. Take plenty of water and strong shoes, when you visit the site.
