Set amidst towering walls of rose-colored stone, the lost city of Petra
certainly deserves its title as one of the New Seven Wonders of the
World. Petra represents thousands of years of history, dating all the
way back to the Neolithic era. The name of the city means 'cleft in the
rock' in both Greek and Arabic; the intricate buildings are literally
carved into the steep cliffs that line the Arabah, a valley that runs
from the Dead Sea to the Gulf of Aqaba.
