Seven Wonders of the World no.2

Petra is in Jordan in the Middle east, it means “rock” in Greek. Petra is also called the “City of Rocks” as it is made out of sandstone. The water supply system of Petra was very good for the time it was made. The best structure was the treasury buildings, It had carvings of eagles, flowers and leaves etc.

The city had lots of temples, monuments and tombs. It got destroyed because of a large earthquake in May of AD 363. In 2007 it became one of the seven wonders of the world.
