Petra

Petra, in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, is a legendary archaeological site renowned for its massive rock-cut architecture. Built about two thousand years ago by the Nabataeans, it is a monumental city that has fired the imagination of tourists ever since it was introduced to the West in 1812 by the Swiss explorer, Johann Ludwig Burckhard.

Nineteenth century English poet, John Burgon, in his famous sonnet ‘Petra’, wrote about the city: ‘Match me such a marvel save in Eastern Clime/ A rose-red city half as old as time.’
