Petra - An excursion in Amman, Jordan
Petra was first established sometime around the 6th century BC, by the Nabataean Arabs. Petra lies about 3-5 hours south of Amman, about 2 hours north of Aqaba, on the edges of the mountainous desert of the Wadi Araba.
Petra is considered the most famous and gorgeous site in Jordan. Admired then for its refined culture, massive architecture and ingenious complex of dams and water channels, Petra is now a UNESCO world heritage site and one of The New 7 Wonders of the World.
The approach through a kilometer long, cool, and gloom chasm a long narrow gorge whose steeply rising sides provides a dramatic contrast with the magic to come. The gorge opens into a natural square dominated by Petra's most famous monument, The Treasury (El-Khazneh), whose intricately carved facade glows in the dazzling sun.
