Petra, located in Jordan, is an ancient city existing within the red cliffs.

Standing at a crossroads, many travelers and merchants passed by, bringing wealth to the city. Possibly as many as 20,000 Nabataeans called Petra home, who built many great tombs and monuments.

The ancient people used natural springs to create reservoirs to support the population, which peaked around the year 50 A.D. As trade routes changed and moved away from Petra, the city slowly died out and became forgotten for at least 500 years.
