Petra

Located in Southern Jordan, Petra was the capital of the Nabateans, whose weatlh from incense trade was spent on showy tomb facades in the local colored sandstone.

 It is reached from the east, after a spectacular walk in a gorge (the Siq), ending in the Khazaneh (the “treasury”), which was a Royal tomb.

Beyond it are countless tomb facades carved in the local colorful sandstone, a Roman style city, with its main temple (Qasr el-bint) still in tact.

Petra is one of the most impressive archaeological sites in the world (!).
