    Cute little trip to see the ruins - much quieter than Petra with less hassle.

    Free to enter.

    Worth a visit but only for 1-2hrs max.

    We went as part of a group tour on our way to Petra. This simple structure at the intersection of the northern entrance of Wadi Musa is the Moses spring. It is beleived that this is the place where the prophet Moses struck the rock with his staff and water gushed out for his followers. Not a awe inspiring site, but it is still a sacred site to those who are religious. Glad we stopped there.

    It is unconfirmed which King the Urn Tomb was built for, but no matter, it is worthy of exploration. There is a steep climb ascending up steps to the Urn Tomb for the sure-footed, but the tourist will find vendors offering all sorts of souvenirs, including samples of Petra's lovely stone, along the way. Columns in good condition line the exterior side of the tomb, with half-columns carved into the stone facade, rising several stories upon the primary face of the Urn Tomb. Venture inside and admire the lovely striations of the rose-colored stone, appearing to have been paint-brushed on. At the rear wall of the main chamber, when the tomb was converted into a church, 3 apses were carved into the stone, which lend a nice dimension. Views of the Petra Valley from this plateau are expansive.

    Part of the Royal Tombs collection, this smaller monument is named for the dramatic colors of the sandstone. The natural erosion of the rock resulting in silk-like strands of rainbow colors made it one of my favorites.

    If you are looking for a souvenir you are in the right place. The best shop of the city! He is very kind. Good quality and low price.
