A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the archaeological site of Petra is considered the eighth Wonder of the World. Located in the southwestern Jordanian desert, the city dates back to about 300 BC and was the capital of the ancient Nabataean kingdom. Accessible through the narrow canyon of the Siq, Petra contains tombs and temples carved into the pink sandstone cliff. Nicknamed the "pink city" because of the pink sandstone, the city offers to the visitors more fascinating sites than the others! High of 45 meters, the Khazneh remains undoubtedly the most known building of Petra. It is the temple with the facade decorated in a Greek style and known as the "Treasury". The Treasury, more than 2000 years old, the Siq and the Great Square of Sacrifice do not leave indifferent. Petra is an ancient capital rich in culture and history from a distant time.
