Petra “the spectacular rose red city” the lost city in the middle of nowhere with its huge facades carved into the rocks that will take your breath away around each corner. It is a vast, unique city, carved into the sheer rock face by the Nabateans, an industrious Arab people who settled here more than 2000 years ago, turning it into an important junction for the silk, spice and other trade routes that linked China, India and southern Arabia with Egypt, Syria, Greece and Rome. Petra has been featured in Hollywood blockbusters such as "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" and " The Mummy Returns".
Beyond Al Khazneh you are surrounded on both sides by hundreds of Petra's curved and built structures, soaring temples, elaborate royal tombs, a curved Nabatean theater (seating 3,000 people), large and small houses, burial chambers, banquet halls, water channels and Reservoirs, bathes, monumental staircases, cultic installations, arched gates, public buildings and paved streets.
