Many amazing and significant sites in the world are nothing like what you see in photos. We often have to wait in long lines of tourists, edging our way through a crowd of people who are only there for a selfie to post to their social feeds. Petra is certainly a tourist attraction and the treasury in particular is where people spend most of their time during a visit, but it was far less crowded than many places I have been. After exiting this canyon leading in, I saw a lot of people just staring slackjawed or sitting down and quietly taking it in. There is something about this entrance that can't be done justice with a mere photo. Maybe it's that feeling that overwhelms people and encourages silent awe.
