Horse Square - Horses are available for hire to cover the first 800 yards of the path leading to the Siq. Seen here are the stables at the eastern entrance through which modern visitors approach the site. The impressive eastern entrance leads steeply down through a dark, narrow gorge called the Siq ("the shaft"), a natural geological feature formed from a deep split in the sandstone rocks and serving as a waterway flowing into Wadi Musa. At the end of the narrow gorge stands Petra's most elaborate ruin, Al Khazneh (popularly known as "the Treasury"), hewn into the sandstone cliff. Download
