N.A. El Khasne--Temple at Petra--cut from the solid rock. The rock is black where stained by time, but of a rich salmon color when freshly broken. The Temple exactly fronts the mouth of the Sik. The Main Avenue (natural) to Petra, is a wild, rocky gorge, one mile in length. The temple was evidently constructed with special reference to its architectural effect on the beholder as it is approached through this gorge. The color of the stone is local and not due to sunlight. [P. 4.]
