Once an important trading centre of the Roman Empire, and straddling the ancient Holy Land of the world's three great monotheistic religions, Jordan is a desert kingdom wrapped in history.
Stand on Mt Nebo and survey the land promised to Moses; unwrap a scarf or two at Mukawir, where Salome cast a spell over men in perpetuity, float in the Dead Sea beside a pillar of salt, reputed to be Lot's disobedient wife; go just about anywhere in Jordan and you'll find every stone bares a tale, and those of Madaba's legendary mosaics tell more tales than most.
Petra,the jewel in the crown of Jordan's antiquities,is one of the New Seven Wonders of the world.The magnificent rock-hewn city of the Nabateans has been a favorite destination for Europeans since the 19th century and at sunset on a winter's day,when the rose-pink city catches alight,it is easy to see why this enchanting place has charmed generations of visitors.
