Welcome! I am your virtual tour guide around the world. I have prepared for you an overview of the Tour to the Petra (Full Day) from Amman.
Review and Facts:
The most famous attraction in Jordan is Petra.
Giant red rocks and a huge necropolis have nothing to do with modern civilization. You can only enjoy their pristine beauty - this is one of the greatest miracles ever created by nature and man.
In order to believe in its existence, you need to see it with your own eyes. Petra is undoubtedly the main treasure and the most popular tourist attraction in Jordan. This unique huge city was cut down in the rocks by the Nabataeans, a hardworking Arab tribe that settled here over 2000 years ago. The city is a road running along the narrow Siq with a length of over a kilometer, over which from both sides of the towering 80-meter cliff. The passage through the gorge of Sik is a whole adventure in itself. The color and shape of the rocks are amazing. At the end of the gorge overlooking the Palace of al-khazneh (Treasury). It is a sight that causes awe.
Against the background of a massive facade of 30 meters wide and 43 meters high, carved in a solid rock of dark pink color, everything seems to be dwarf. The Palace, built in the early I century as a tomb for one of the Nabataean kings, embodies the engineering genius of this ancient people. Peter is truly considered a unique monument of architecture!
