About 200 meters in front of the theater (coming from the direction of the Siq) a small road branches off that leads to half-hour climb to the sacrificial site. At the 1035-meter-high summit two obelisks stand (7 meters) in honor of Nabataean deities. To create them, the entire mountain peaks were chiselled away. On a rocky outcrop is the sacrificial site.
The two altars were probably used for animal sacrifices. The drainage channels for the blood are clearly visible. From here you have the best view over the valley that contains the city of Petra. On your way to the south, behind the obelisk, you will pass other sites of interest: the Lion Fountain (from the mouth of the lion once ran water that was led into the city), the garden grave, and the tomb of the Roman soldiers (named after the three statues in Roman armor above the entrance). You then reach Petra Qasr al-Bint Faraun.
