Petra is an amazing ancient city in Jordan, in the Middle East. Most of the city is not built of wood, bricks or stones, but carved from the solid rock of the mountains.

Petra had a public theatre and a fountain, public baths and many family homes. It was a busy city for about 1,000 years starting around 400 BC. People who live there always had water problems. In desert conditions, they sometimes had a problem obtaining enough drinking water. They had an opposing problem when it rained. Floods went down the narrow entrance to Petra and overtook the city.
