The Urn Tomb: the access staircase, built on vaults, goes up to a vast atrium edged with a monolithic colonnade. The frontage is from Hellenistic inspiration with its pilasters and its semi-committed columns. This tomb was transformed by the bishop Jason into church in 447. Its interior part, one of largest of Petra, was extended for this occasion.
