Bab As-Siq, Petra: 16 reviews and 35 photos


At some place, we can still see the original cobblestones for a couple of meters and imagine how the site was looking during the nabatanean times.
Many of those stones disappeared during the many flooding of the siq by the nearby river. Modern work has now been done to definitely avoid this type of flooding.
