Tour JordanThe Rough Guide to Jordan Tour Jordan. Western travellers have been exploring the Middle East for well over a century, but Jordan remains a newcomer to tourism, welcoming only a fraction of the numbers who visit its near neighbours. The country's popular image abroad encompasses not much more than proud desert nomads ruled by a wise king, and almost nothing is known of Jordan's mountains and beaches, castles and ancient churches, the urbanity of its people and richness of its culture. However, in the last decade the country has woken up to marketing its spectacular assets to the world. Tourist facilities are now well advanced, and for the curious few, there is no better time to visit.

PetraPetra Petra, the 'rose-red city' carved out of the living rock of the mountains of southern Jordan, is one of the most spectacular survivals of the ancient world, its monuments rank with those of classical Greece and Rome and its desert setting is unrivalled. In this book, now republished in an updated edition, Jane Taylor provides a superb portrait of the city for visitors (and for armchair travellers) which also relates the history of the mysterious Nabateans who built the city and the miles of water channels which diverted the sparse local rainfall into its reservoirs. She also describes what is known of the earlier inhabitants of the area, from the Stone Age onwards, and the history of Petra after the fall of the Nabatean kingdom in AD 106, when it was ruled, successively, by the Roman and Byzantine empires, the Islamic Caliphate and, briefly, the crusaders, each of whom added their own contributions to its rich archaeological record. So far as the West was concerned, the city was 'lost' with the departure of the crusaders and was only 'rediscovered' in 1812 by the Swiss explorer, Burckhardt. There is a full description, and many magnificent photographs, of the various buildings, which can be seen by visitors today with an account of their origins and uses and the latest archaeological findings. The book is completed by a description of other archaeological sites.
