This picture is actually of the Treasury, not the monastery. The monastery is on a mountain behind it.

Been there, seen it, climbed inside it - it's fantastic, and huge doesn't come near a description. Considering this was hand carved using iron - not steel or CTC tipped chisels, scaffolding that was trees and branches lashed together hundreds, nay thousands of years before Christ...

There is plenty of water there, I got so hot walking the mile or so back to the entrance to the canyon, I poured water over myself 'til I was dripping - and by the time I reached the entrance, I was dry again

Have always wanted to see this - I've read that you can still faintly smell the fragrances used in the mortar or plaster inside. Probably not a good idea to visit right now.

I don't recall, from some 8 years in the past, any fragrances there, except that inside it smelt somewhat damp and musty with an overlaying smell of - well, for want of a better word, staleness. Outside, it smelt of hot desert - a indescribable smell you have to experience personally, but once smelt you'll recognise it again instantly. Oh, and sweaty camels (I'm being polite with the word 'sweaty') and camel pooh.

However, go up to the Monastery at the top of the mountain behind it - around 3, 500 feet - there is a stone staircase cut into the mountain all the way to the top - (I didn't bother to count the number of steps) and the air is cooler and fresher, and you get a fantastic view of...well desert.

Seriously, I'm glad I got the chance to see it when I did, 'coz once the Islamist Scumbags take over Jordan, its gone for good.

That's one of my fears, drawback. We've already lost so many important cultural and historic sites to war.

I agree with you about the smell of the desert. It is unique and unforgettable.

This structure must be huge! Look at the size of it compared to the horse or donkey at the bottom. Wow!

I didn't notice the donkey until I saw your comment. I tried looking on Wikipedia for the size of facade, but there wasn't any information. It appears to be huge.
