The most impressive monument at Petra is the Monastery, which is about an hour's climb north of Petra's city center, on an ancient rock-cut path of about 800 steps. The facade is flat on the lower level and deeply carved on the upper level, with engaged columns and two half-pediments flanking a central urn (10m high). It was dedicated to the Nabatean king Obodas I, who reigned in the 1st century BC.
