Petra is a rock-cut architectural city in Southern Jordan. It is famously called ,,a rose-red city half as old as time'' in an 1845 Poem. It's also rather well known for it's apparent water conduit system. Access is through a picturesque 1.2km long gorge. And the area is thought to have been inhabited as early as 7000BC.
