Legend has long held that there is a fortune in specie hidden in the urn at the very top of the picture. It looks rather roughed up because for centuries persons who subscribe to the legend have attempted through various means (even shooting at it) to bring it down. No one has ever succeeded, to my knowledge.

I always make notes for cinephiles, and there's one for Petra and the Treasury. The third film in the "Indiana Jones" series was partly shot in this area, and The Treasury is used as the locale where Jones seeks the Holy Grail.
