What travelers say:

After leaving the church, I would climb to a high slope, where I sat in a small canopy for 5 minutes, adjusted my rest, drank a cup of hot "mint black tea", and continued on my way down. Going down to the magnificent The Great Temple of Petra-the largest and magnificent grand palace. From the photo below, you can see the royal tombs and the Palace at the time of arrival, as well as the Great Temle and the direction of the access road to the monastery. The Great Temple was first discovered by Brünnow and von Domaszewski, but Bachmann finally identified the existence of the Great Temple in his Petra city plan. At the same time, there is also the column street on the southern slope. In view of his assumptions about the existence of the Great Temple area and the importance of this assumption in understanding Petra's architectural and human history, the excavation of the site in 1993 established its remarkable achievement.
