The Nabataean City of Petra in Jordan
Have you ever watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade? When Indiana Jones rode down a canyon as he approached the temple? That particular canyon is known as the Siq, and the temple is actually the treasury inside Petra, an ancient UNESCO-listed Nabataean city in Jordan. Nothing will prepare you the sheer expanse of the city, expertly carved into the red-rose colored limestone in the Wadi Musa desert. Do you also know that Petra ranks among the most recognized and respected archaeological sites globally? And also that in 2007, it was inducted among the New 7 Wonders of the World?
