Date probably early 2nd CE
Located at Petra, Jordan
El Khazneh was likely constructed during the rule of Hadrian or Trajan, the El Khazneh, or Treasury, of Petra, is a well-preserved and beautiful example of distant Roman architecture. Six Corinthian columns support an architrave, upon which additional columns support a broken architrave, between which rises a tholos, atop which rests a finial. Though its name suggests its use as a Treasury, a lack of documentation makes it difficult to determine its actual use; even relief sculptures upon the façade to the cult of Isis could even suggest its use a temple.
