Petra is an inheritance, that was left to us by the Nabataens over 2000 years ago. The Nabataens were very industrious, creating one of the greatest water systems of their time. Petra was occupied by over 20,000 residents and was very prosperous. They built water cisterns and collected the water from the flash floods, then went on to sell the water to caravans and merchants, passing through. The Nabataens created great facades in the sandstone in the typical Roman architectural manner, the most famous of them is "The Treasury". There is a Roman theater, in which you can see the tombs still standing there between the seatings. The amphitheater once held over 4000 seats. There are many temples, statues, facades (numbering about 800) in Petra for you to view.
