@abutweiss thanks! cant wait for you to see more. Man your from Petra???
Report spam or abuse
it is true that ancient Arab cared about carving because they cared about death and life after death! if you go further south (in Arabian desert) you will find two cities madain saleh and madain shoaib both are Nabataeans cities.... The two cities showed not just nabateans era but also lihyan

Under Aretas III Philhellene, (c.85–60 BC), the royal coins begin. The theatre was excavated at that time, and Petra have assumed the aspect of a Hellenistic city. In the reign of Aretas IV Philopatris, (9 BC–40 AD)..then the Romans came and the place was absorbed into the Roman Empire as part of Arabia Petraea, becoming capital.

WOW dave! Petra is awesome! I woke out of deep sleep one time and heard the voice of a woman whisper in my ear that said "Petra". I've been with the thought of this city's name for a while now. Thumbs up, thanks for sharing ^_^

@GAIASDREAMER thank you for commenting I really appreciate the support. BTW how did you find this video?
Report spam or abuse
It is supposed to be Established sometime around the 6th century BC as the capital city of the Nabataeans,..but it's not sure the the curving of the Petra happened at that time because Diodorus Siculus when he wrote the Bibliotheca historica,was between 60 and 30 BC.

So it is more likely that these curves were made by the Hellenistic years by the Greek generals of Alexander the great,and later we see elements of the Greco-Roman time!..THANK YOU!..THE TRUTH HAS TO BE SAID!

@EvannRachel I know right!! so crazy that it was filmed there.. one of my favorite places I have ever been to
Report spam or abuse
Thee characteristics of the place are partly Egyptian and partly Greek, clearly pointing to the age of the Ptolemies...close of the 2nd century BC, when the Ptolemaic and Seleucid kingdoms were equally depressed, the Nabataean kingdom came to the front...

@Betaplayer366 I was actually contacting different tourism boards and they were very responsive. They invited me, thank god for them! Wow this video is rocking!!! did you see the video of Sri Lanka #1?

The passage in Diodorus Siculus 94–97which describes the expeditions which Antigonus sent against the Nabataeans in 312 BC is understood to throw some light upon the history of Petra, but the "petra" referred to as a natural fortress and place of refuge cannot be a proper name and the description implies that the town was not yet in existence!

@Davidsbeenhere Yes both cities are in Saudi Arabia..you will find it interesting. Petra is famous and crowded but these cities are isolated by few people who know about it! If you really go to Saudi arabia you should also see lihyan(Dedan) ruins ... which is a kingdom before Nabtean and their style more like Egyptian.
