Petra is an inheritance left by the Nabateans over 2,000 years ago. The Nabateans were very prosperous, by collecting the rain water, and selling it to passing travelers and merchants.
Walk through the Siq, the pathway that leads to the Treasury, that is over 1 km long. Arrive at the Treasury, that was carved out of sandstone, and was influenced by Roman architecture. Continue on to the Roman Theater that could hold over 4,000 people, and see the tombs placed in between the seating.
