Overview

Petra, also known as the “Rose City,” is a historic archaeological site in modern-day Jordan, known for its desert scenery and rock-cut architecture. Founded in the 4th century BC, it flourished as a center of business and culture due to its control over valuable resources like precious stones, incense, and spices. The Treasury, a beautiful temple carved into rose-colored sandstone cliffs, is a recognizable feature. Beyond the Treasury, Petra is home to numerous other archaeological marvels, including tombs, temples, theaters, and monasteries. The city’s most famous road, the Siq, takes tourists to the center through a canyon surrounded by towering rocks. Inducted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985, Petra is now a popular tourist destination in the Middle East, attracting tourists from around the world to explore its historic ruins and rich past.
