This is the high altar of sacrifice in Petra. A pretty substantial hike up narrow stairs chiseled out of the rocks, to one of the highest peaks in the region and a view over a large part of the city. The top was probably used for cultic ceremonies, as the name subtly suggests.
|Roasting in the desert heat, but well worth the hike and sweat|
|The hike up through a bit of a gorge|
|Some sort of monuments or ritual items at the top|
|Tombs look a lot smaller from this high up|
