Petra is thousands of years old and was at one time inhabited by the Nabateans. They were a very creative and industrious nation. The Nabateans created water cisterns, that gather rainwater and sold it to passing caravans, merchants, and travelers. After a big earthquake hit the region, the cisterns were damaged beyond repair, and the archaeologists believe that it is why the Nabateans abandoned Petra. Petra has another name, the Rose Colored City, the mountains are rose colored, and as the day goes on - the mountains change theyr color from orange to red.
Shobak is known for it crusader castle - the Montreal. The castle was built by Baldwin the first of Jerusalem, over a thousand years ago.
