Photographer's Note

Ad Deir ("The Monastery"; Arabic: الدير ), also known as El Deir, is a monumental building carved out of rock in the ancient Jordanian city of Petra.

Arguably one of the most iconic monuments in the Petra Archaeological Park, the Monastery (ad-Dayr) is located high in the hills northwest of the Petra city center. It is the second most commonly visited monument in Petra, after the Treasury.

The rock-cut facade of the Monastery is 45 meters high and 50 meters wide.
