Al Khazneh (The Treasury) is one of the crown jewels of the canyon city of Petra. Candlelight tours are given three night a week. Candles light up the canyon path leading up to Al Khazneh, which is lit up by hundreds of candles, where Bedouins perform traditional music. After the performance, people are allowed a few moments to wander among the candles. Many people only had cell phone cameras with them, adding an interesting effect.
Location: Petra, Jordan
