The location is Petra, Jordan. This building is called the Treasury and is the first thing seen when coming to the end of the Siq, a narrow canyon leading into Petra. This was a backdrop in the Indy Jones movie, "Indiana Jones and the last Crusade." In the movie a labryinth lies within, however, in reality only a big empty room lies beyond the dark opening.
