Jordan’s ancient city of Petra is jaw-dropping. Most of us are familiar with photos of the two most famous buildings, the Treasury and Monastery. However, beyond the glitz and the glam, lies a whole city. Ancient temples, tombs, banks and homes are spread throughout the UNESCO world heritage site. Each building was hand carved from the top down by stone smiths using hammer and chisel, while dangling from a rope. It truly is a testament to the ingenuity and creativity of mankind.
