Petra, Jordan

4 years ago

I`m very inspired to take a trip, so I was browsing on the internet some places that i would like to visit, and i found this beautiful pics from Petra in Jordan.
It has been described by the UNESCO as one of the most precious cultural properties of mans cultural heritage, Petra is an archeological site on the slope of Mount Hor. It is one of the new wonders of the world and is famous for its rock-cut architecture.
This site was kept hidden until 1812 when it was discovered by a Swiss explorer. It was said to have been prepared by God for the Jewish people. Petra once flourished under the Roman empire but a rapid decline began with the Arabian trade being taken elsewhere. Then an earthquake caused a great deal of destruction. Tourists frequent the place to get a glimpse of the ruins of this beautiful city.

I love to see different architectural design, specially when you think that at that time the people that built it didn`t have the intruments that we have today.

What do you think of this place?
