Petra, a historical site located in the heart of the desert, was once inhabited by the Nabateans over two millennia ago. The Nabateans thrived in this arid region by constructing water cisterns and selling water to passing merchants and travelers. However, a massive earthquake struck Petra, causing irreparable damage to the water cisterns. Consequently, the Nabateans abandoned the city. Despite their departure, Petra remains rich in historical significance, offering a wealth of intriguing remnants from their civilization. Exploring Petra entails marveling at iconic landmarks such as the famous Treasury, as well as discovering mourning halls, temples, tombs, and many other remarkable structures.
