Address: Petra, Jordan

What people are saying:

The palace of the daughters-now there are only a few parts left. It is said that it used to be a tall palace where the king's daughter lived. There is a story: Back then, the place was very short of water. The king promised that whoever could solve the water problem would marry his daughter. As a result, a young man really solved the drinking water problem. In the snake path, there is really a sink, very clear.

    Wonderful design

    This is the only freestanding building left in Jordan. The reason for this is down to it’s very clever design. On each wall there are three courses of wood in the walls. The wood acts as a damper in t...

    We could not get close because of time limitations
