Petra was left by the Nabateans, they built it around the 5th century B.C.E. The entrance is called the siq. It is a long path way that is a crack in the mountain, after which you will get your first look at the amazing Treasury, the great facade that was carved into the mountain. There are tombs, most of them were deteriorating, and due to this, were robbed of their treasures. An amphitheater that is cut into a hillside, as they were building it uncovered a lot of tombs. There are still over 800 structures in Petra today.
