  • Like everything around the Petra complex a place well worth seeing. Also since it's the only area shaded from the sun a good place to sit and relax.  more »
  • Aside from the Siq, this is the only area shaded from the sun. Relax, cool down, and shop till you drop. For sure, the facades are interesting too.  more »
