Photo of the Day ~ The Ancient Nabataean City Of Petra

in #travel5 years ago

 The Ancient Nabataean  City Of Petra In The Southern Jordanian  Governorate of Maan  

In Southwest Jordan you will find an amazing desert, colorful, extremly hot, with rugged mountains and deep canyons. Amid all this natural beauty you will find the city of Petra, built during the time of the Nabataean Kingdom between 100 B.C. to 106 A.D. For years Petra was a major trading center and capital city of the empire of the Nabataean people. Then for centuries it lay in ruin, empty, and forgotten. The city was lost for centuries. Now this beautiful hidden city is a UNESCO World Heritage Center.
