Jordan is characterized by ancient monuments, nature reserves and well-known seaside resorts. Here are the famous archaeological excavations of Petra. Around 300 BC Petra was the capital of the Nabataeans. In a narrow valley, tombs, temples and other structures were driven into the red sandstone, which is why Petra is also called "pink city".
