Petra tour map 1 day tour sites , the Nabatean Capital
The tour begins in the visitor center of Wadi Musa and ends in Petra restaurant area. The entrance to Petra is via long narrow that is called "siq" . The tombs in the city were carved by the Nabateans and their purpose was to eternalize the rulers by building such an elaborate house/grave/tomb for them. Petra is a mystic and glorious place, an eternal tribute to the lost civilization of the Nabateans. These industrious Desert Masters carved an entire city: theatre, temples, facades, tombs, monasteries, houses into the natural rose-red sandstone rocks that surrounds it. They left for us to see and marvel!
