Résumé : The archaeological remains of the Jabal Nmayr (Petra) and the religious monuments (niches and betyls) that mark its access way are examined. Several unpublished monuments are presented. A relief of a soldier (D 276) is discussed. The hypothesis of a connection between the high-place of the Jabal Nmayr and the Nabataean MHRMH is proposed; the sanctuary is compared to the layout of Kh. at-Tannur and other high-places from Petra. Finally, spatial connections between the Jabal Nmayr high-place, the Obodas chapel complex and the suburban neighborhood of the Wadi Farasah are analyzed.
