Publisher Description

RECENTLY UPDATED FOR 2022! With high-resolution images, maps and a detailed tour itinerary, this is the definitive travel guide to Jordan's ancient city of Petra.

Petra’s temples and tombs — carved into the sandstone cliffs of Jordan’s Negev Desert — are a sight to be seen. They stand witness to the greatness of the Nabataean civilization which thrived from 312 BCE - 106 CE. Just as the Nabataeans’ trading network brokered goods between East and West, its architecture bridged styles, yielding a creative mix of Mesopotamian (East) and Greek (West) traditions. It is yours to discover.
