Royal Tombs, Petra: 27 reviews and 54 photos
From the Royal Tombs you have an imposing view of the Colonnaded Road and of the Petra mountains behind. This was the heart of the trading city of Petra. Valleys running left and right from the end of this road led onto the trading routes; to the left towards Wadi Araba (the direct route from the coast to Jerusalem) and to the right towards Beidha and the north. Many caravans took these routes.
The camels were not allowed to come into Petra, but the merchants travelling with them did, and no doubt the citizens of Petra welcomed them cheerfully - and charged whatever they could for a decent bed and hot bath!
