THE TREASURY (Petra): Hiding place of the Holy Grail in 'The Last Crusade'.

You probably remember how in the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Indy and his gang travel around the world searching the Holy Grail. Can you come up with a better place to lock up such a relic than inside one of the 7 Wonders of the Modern World?

“The Treasury” (Al Khazneh) at Petra is a breathtaking temple carved out of a sandstone rock face among long and narrow corridors. It was probably built in the 1st century BC and, of all the highlights of Petra, this is the most famous construction.
