Petra (in Arabic  Al-Batrāʾand in Latin Petra, Petra means The rock in Greek, it is a historical and archaeological city in the southern Jordanian governorate of Ma'an that is famous for its rock-cut architecture and water conduit system. Petra is also about three hours south of Amman.
Petra was the Nabataean capital, located between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, and it is surrounded by mountains riddled with passages and gorges. It is one of the world's most famous archaeological sites, where ancient Eastern traditions blend with Hellenistic architecture.
Petra was established  about  312 BCE as the capital city of the Nabataeans .
Petra unique site remained unknown to the western world until 1812, when it was rediscovered by the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt .
Petra is also known as the Rose City due to the color of the stone out of which it is carved,.
To start a tour to visit Petra you will enter from one of 2 ways, but the Siq  is the ancient main entrance leading tourists to  Petra city, starts at the Dam and ends at the opposite side of the vault, the siq is a narrow gorge, over 1km in length, which is flanked on either side by soaring, 80m high cliffs. Just walking through the Siq is an experience in itself. The colours and formations of the rocks are dazzling, a split rock with a length of about 1200 meters and a width of three to twelve meters, and height up to about 80meters; most of the Siq rock is natural and another part was sculptured by the Nabataeans, The Siq which is the main road to enter to Petra starts from the Dam and ends at the Treasury.
which is perfectly positioned opposite the main route into Petra, the Treasury (al-Khazneh in Arabic), it is not clear what was the treasury , may be it was a temple, while the Arab tribes were thinking it was an ancient tomb for ancient Pharoah from Egypt , and that big treasure was hidden inside it, that is why it was called the Treasury.
During a tour in Petra you will see temples, tombs, and other buildings are all carved out of the sandstone cliffs, wich also gives it the name the "rose red city"
