Petra

Southern Jordan is home to the famous ancient site of Petra. Up until 1812, only the Bedouins ‎were aware of Petra’s magnificent monuments, which are now considered as one of the world’s ‎wonders.‎

These days, Petra’s amazing remains are a source of inspiration for tourists. Along with later ‎Roman modifications and even a Byzantine church adorned with mosaics, intricate temples and ‎tombs emerge from cliffs and rocks. The tomb of the Roman governor Sextius Florentinus, a ‎Roman palace, and the remains of the main colonnaded road are among the other Roman ‎remains.‎

The Treasury, Petra’s most spectacular and well-preserved monument, is the site that most visitors ‎arrive at first. The Treasury, which consists of a complex façade carved out of rock, is believed to ‎have existed in the first century BC, however its exact function is uncertain (it may have been a ‎temple, perhaps a tomb).‎
