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

 
 

In case you are wondering what is this kind of trench you can see at around 1 meter high in the rock, this is not a bank carved for the exhausted tourists, this is the aqueduct used by the Nabataneans. It was indeed the place of a long argyle pipe carrying water into the city.
Of course when the Romans besieged the city, this is the first thing they destroyed?

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
