Fodor's Review

No one can say for sure which god was worshipped at this temple, or whether it was the seat of the city's government. But the dozens of columns that adorn its courtyards, beautifully restored in recent years by archaeologists from Brown University, attest to its ancient grandeur. It even boasted its own theater, which some scholars believe may have been a meeting hall for Petra's rulers.
