What people are saying:

Not long after Djin blocks walked, I saw the Roman Obelisk from a distance. This Roman obelisk is often mentioned in conjunction with the Bab el Siq Triclinium, because they are stacked on top of each other, but they are two independent rock tombstone monuments. The upper layer-Obelisk Tomb-is the Roman obelisk, erected with four typical long and narrow pyramid-shaped pyramids, which represent souls and are used to commemorate dead souls in the symbolic meaning of the Nabataeans. There is a worn out statue in the middle depression. It is a man in a cloak. He represents the head of the family, who is buried in the tomb below. The mountain wall below the tomb, along with benches placed on three sides, portrays the location of the restaurant. Here, a banquet is held to commemorate the ancestors.
