This Petra tomb was built by the Nabateans in the 1st century BC. The most intriguing part of this structure is the interesting mixture of Egyptian, Greek, and Nabatean-styled architecture.

The first major monument that you come to will be on the left side of the road. This is the Obelisk tomb, named after the four Indian obelisks that decorate the top of the tomb. This tomb has two stories to it. The top story houses the tomb proper, while the bottom story, decorated in a more classical style contains a traditional dining hall for Nabataean funnery rites.
