The Garden Triclinium in Wadi Farasa, a narrow gorge in Petra (Jordan) containing rock-cut monuments, including the Lion Fountain, the Garden Triclinium, the Roman Soldier Tomb, and the Renaissance Tomb. The original function of the Garden Triclinium is still not clear, but it may have been part of the Nabataean water system and probably originated in connection with the Soldier Tomb complex. A big retaining wall that creates a huge natural water reservoir is located on the right of the Garden Triclinium.
