Al-Khazneh - Façade details

The upper part of the façade is divided in three structures. In the center is a tholos (round temple) with columns, and three figures. The central figure on the front side has been identified as an assimilation of the Egyptian goddess Isis, and Tyche, the Greek goddess of fortune and prosperity. The figures on both sides are Amazons.
