Qasr al-Bint – Petra

Qasr al-Bint is located on a path that moves directly forward from the Colonnaded Street. It was the main temple of Petra and is the only free-standing building in the area that survived earthquakes and floods until now. Unfortunately it was gated and under restoration at the time and we were not allowed to enter. Qasr al-Bint marks the beginning of the trail that leads up to Ad-Deir.
