The Caves of Ancient Petra

Wadi Musa, Ma'an Governorate, Jordan
14 Kudos
Ancient city of Petra in Jordan is truly an incredible architectural masterpiece and is absolutely massive in its size. As we walked through a labyrinth of ancient paths amidst the towering massive walls and cliffs, we could see a lot of caves of different sizes and shapes scattered in the rock walls. Our local Bedouin guide explained that these caves are actually the tombs of ordinary people of Nabatean Empire. However, as we progressed further down the city, our guide pointed out that some of the caves carved into the cliff are places where people from his local tribe still reside to this day.
