The city of Petra is known for being built and carved into the surrounding rock. This ancient city, located in the southwestern desert of the country, is surrounded by mountains with plenty of passages and gorges. The Siq is pictured and it is the main entrance to beautiful Petra. This passage gets as narrow as 10 feet at some points and is a must visit to take a walk through.
