Petra, Obeliszk Sír és a Triklinium / Petra, Obelisk Tomb & Bab Al-Siq Triclinium

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Az Obeliszk Sír egy csodálatos emlékmű és egy tökéletes példája a stílusok művészi összehangolásának a kelet és a nyugat között. Az obeliszk nyilvánvalóan egyiptomi hatást mutat; a falmélyedés az obeliszkek között viszont Graeco- Román hatásra vall. A Triklinium egy szoba három lócával, melynek célja – nabateusok lévén – a szent ünnepek megünneplése volt, amely minden évben helyet adott a halottak tiszteletére rendezett ünnepségnek.

Actually, it is two separate monuments, stacked on top of each other: the Obelisk Tomb (upper) and Bab as-Siq Triclinium (lower). The four great obelisks of the Obelisk Tomb, with a figure in a niche in the center, guard a rock-hewn cave containing burials.

The lower half, the Bab as-Siq Triclinium, functioned as a dining room (triclinium) where feasts were held in honor of the dead - a practice that was also common among the Romans. The interior is a single room with rock-carved benches on all three sides.
