Roman Gate

Looking west
Petra, Jordan

This photo looks west from the Great Temple. The people in the center of the photo are walking through the central opening of the Roman Gate, into the sacred precinct of Qasr al-Bint. A bit of the Qasr al-Bint's east wall is visible well beyond and to the left of the gate in this photo.

The three openings in the gate were originally supplied with hinged doors.
