Palace Tomb

The Palace Tomb has one of the largest facades in Petra. Meant to resemble a palace, it measures about 50 meters width and is almost as high, with part of the upper levels built instead of carved out of the rock. It was probably erected near the end of the Nabataean period at the end of the 1st cent. AD.
