Petra, Jordan: 113 reviews and 184 photos

by nepalgoods

Twothousand years ago Petra has been a wealthy city at the incence road from Arabia to Greece. Hidden in the red rocks it was never possible to conquer this town. Petra was left, when there was not enough water anymore, and then it was completely forgotten until recent times, when adventourers and explorers discovered Petra again. Only the beduins always knew about this ancient city.
