Al Khazneh - 3 Days Ago! he Treasury (Al Khazneh) is in Indiana Jones movie - LAST CRUSADE! It also appeared in many other Hollywood movies, gaining particular fame after being featured in climactic scenes in the 1989 Indiana Jones movie "Last Cursade", starring Harrison Ford and Sean Connery.

In the movie it was represented as the entrance to the final resting place of the Holy Grail near Hatay. But of course, this was only in the movie

Al Khazneh Detail of the facade  Al Khazneh ("The Treasury"; Arabic: الخزنة‎) is one of the most elaborate temples in the ancient Jordanian city of Petra.
As with most of the other buildings in this ancient town, including the Monastery (Arabic: Ad Deir), this structure was carved out of a sandstone rock face.
It has classical Greek-influenced architecture, and is a popular tourist attraction.

Al Khazneh was originally built as a mausoleum and crypt at the beginning of the 1st Century AD during the reign of Aretas IV Philopatris.

Its Arabic name Treasury derives from one legend that bandits or pirates hid their loot in a stone urn high on the second level. Significant damage from bullets can be seen on the urn.

Local lore attributes this to Bedouins, who are said to have shot at the urn in hopes of breaking it open and spilling out the "treasure"—but the decorative urn is in fact solid sandstone). Another legend is that it functioned as a treasury of the Egyptian Pharaoh at the time of Moses (Khaznet Far'oun).

Many of the building's architectural details have eroded away during the two thousand years since it was carved and sculpted from the cliff.

The sculptures are thought to be those of various mythological figures associated with the afterlife. On top are figures of four eagles that would carry away the souls. The figures on the upper level are dancing Amazons with double-axes.

The entrance is flanked by statues of the twins Castor and Pollux who according to myths, lived partly on Olympus and partly in the underworld.Yusuf at Petra
