Day5: Petra - Amman
After breakfast visit to Petra, ancient Nabatea city excavated in the Pink Rock, which enters through the canyon leading to the treasure: the Roman theater, royal tombs, etc. The relatively soft mountain rock facilitated the development of Nabatean carving. With this material, the Nabataeans developed a construction technique, working directly on the rock without removing it from its place of origin. In order to evaluate the construction capacity of the Nabataeans, we observed that after the beginning of a work there was no possibility of change. Therefore, all measurements, details and cuts should be precisely elaborated. In addition, there is a symbolic and religious language engraved in these sculptures, as all monuments and buildings in the city are loaded with symbolism. The architectural style of the Nabataeans, of Greco-Roman and Eastern influence, reveals their active and cosmopolitan nature.
These people believed that Petra was under the protection of the god dhû Sharâ (Dusares, in Greek). In Petra - known as the Pink City, capital of the Kingdom of the Nabataos from the 3rd century BC to the 2nd century AD - hike the 1km long canyon where at the end we will discover the impressive Al Khazneh, a stone-carved treasure. considered the largest monument in Petra.
