Templars, Indiana Jones and Petra


As you will recall from the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade the Nazi baddy is asked by an ancient Templar knight in the closing scene to choose what he believes is the Holy Grail in order to have eternal life. But there’s an array of goblets to choose from and he gets the wrong one – with disastrous consequences.  This scene is set in a huge tomb in the ruined city of Petra in modern Jordan.  Last month, I had the privilege to go there and here are some amazing photos.
