The Royal Tombs

The Royal Tombs consist of a dozen large burial chambers for the Nabatean Kings. The Urn Tomb with its subterranean vaults and internal chamber (which was later converted into a Byzantine church) is the most striking of all the tombs. Another famous tomb in the Royal Tombs is the well-preserved Tomb of Unayshu, a minister who served the Nabataean kings.
