Petra, Jordan

The forbidding landscape surrounding Petra attest to the incredible ingenuity of the Nabataeans. Complex water catchment systems captured and stored rainwater, feeding the capital's people and numerous lush gardens. One can imagine ancient travelers being awe-struck on arriving into Petra through such wilds.
