Petra from Sharm El Sheikh

Petra is a historical and archaeological city in the southern region of Maan in Jordan It is famous for its architecture and water rock system.

Another name for Petra is Pink City because of the color of the stone from which it was carved.

Established probably as early as 312 BC as the capital of the Nabataeans, it is a symbol of Jordan, as well as the most visited Jordan tourist attractions.

It lies on the hillside of Jebel al-Madhbah (identified by some as the biblical Hor mountain in a basin among the mountains that form the eastern flank of Arabia, the Wadi Araba of the large valley running from the Dead Sea to the Gulf of Aqaba.) Petra was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985.

The site remained unknown to the Western world until 1812, when it was introduced by the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt. It was described as "a red-red city half old as the world" in Newdigate awarded with the poem of John William Burgon.

UNESCO described it as "one of the most valuable cultural heritage assets of man".
