Jordan - Petra (Chapter)
This is the Petra chapter from Lonely Planet’s Jordan guidebook.
The ancient Nabataean city of Petra, with its elaborate architecture chiselled out of the pink-hued cliffs, is not just the leading highlight of a country blessed with more than its fair share of top sites: it’s a wonder of the world. Add to this the cheerfulness of the Bedouin, and it’s easy to see what makes Petra a must.
