We were supposed to visit Citadel site the first day of our trip to Jordan and after coming back to Amman from Jerash but it was already closed when we arrived. Our second attempted to go there was the 5th and second last day of our trip. We were more organized this time and arrived there before 6pm which was the closing time. Despite that and although i could see people inside, the security after calling to someone didn't allowed us to enter saying that the side was closed. There were some cars of the royal family outside the site and our driver said that probably that's the reason we were not allowed to entry. The next day was our last day and we had to be at the airport before noon so we had only 30 minutes for the site. Of course that wasn't enough but under the circumstances we were happy we finally managed to visit the place and that is why we don't have any photos of the Byzantine Church  and the Ummayad Palace. What i am trying to say is that there are more to see than the temple of Hercules and the hand of Hercules (i have to admit that from the photos i was expecting it to be bigger but if you consider that is a part of a 12 meter high statue is very big). Further to those, since Citadel is on the top of a hill right in the center of Amman, while being there you can discover great views of the city around it.
And with these, my trip to Jordan came to its end and i feel nostalgic. I guess if i have the chance i will visit this country again, i feel there are more to see.
I would like to thank my travel buddy @elli_manoli for trusting me and having this amazing experience with me, since Jordan is not a popular destination and my sister @eliana8879 for borrowing me all those amazing outfits 🙂🙂🙂

During the excavation process, few clues were left to help scholars unlock the mysteries of this massive half-finished, abandoned temple. But the ones that did exist were huge—albeit ambiguous. From just three gigantic fingers, one elbow, and a scattering of coins, archaeologists have agreed these marble body parts likely belonged to a massive statue of Hercules himself. Therefore, the theory goes, the temple also must have been dedicated to the half-god known for his feats of strength and far-ranging adventures. 
Experts’ best guess is that, in its original state, the statue would have measured upwards of 12 meters high, which would have placed it among the largest known marble statues to have ever existed. .

The area known as the Citadel sits on the highest hill in Amman, Jebel Al Qala’a (about 850m above sea level), and is the site of ancient Rabbath-Ammon.
Occupied since the Bronze Age, it's surrounded by a 1700m-long wall, which was rebuilt many times during the Bronze and Iron Ages, as well as the Roman, Byzantine and Umayyad periods. 
The two giant standing pillars are the remains of the Roman Temple of Hercules. The temple was built during the reign of Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius (AD 161–80). The only obvious remains are parts of the podium and the columns, which are visible from around town. .

Mount Nebo is the mountain considered to be where Moses saw the Promised Landed before he died, according to the Old Testament. Mount Nebo is believed to be the tomb of Moses. On top of Mt Nebo, there is a modest church, or more accurately basilica, which was built around 4th-century foundations in 597 and has just undergone major reconstruction. It houses some of the best mosaics in Jordan, dating from around 530. .

There are three different wet trails to choose from but only the shortest and easiest one was available when we went there due to rockfalls to the other two trails. 
Guides are compulsory for all but the Siq Trail and should be booked in advance. Siq Trail is self-guided but if you are going for the first time like we did, it's better to take a guide with you. It took us 3 hours to go until the waterfalls were is the end and come back. 
For Canyon Trail you will need around 4 hours and for Malaqi Trail around 6 - 7 hours. 
Original plan was to to go to the Malaqi trail but rockfalls prevented our plan. I was very dissapointed when i received the email with this info but i must admit that at the end of the day I was more than satisfied with the Siq trail. I had the best adventure ever!

I think i was more excited for Wadi Mujib than for Petra. So if you plan to visit Jordan don't skip this activity which is next to the Dead Sea and less than an hour from most of the hotels there. .

Wadi Mujib is a river in Jordan which enters the Dead Sea at 420 metres below sea level.
During the last ice age  the water level of the Dead Sea reached 180 metres below sea level, about 240 metres higher than it is today. As the climatic conditions changed, about 20,000 years ago, the water level of the lake dropped, leaving the re-emergent canyons blocked with lake marl. Most canyons managed to cut through their plugged outlets and to resume their lower courses. However, Wadi Mujib, abandoned its former outlet by breaking through a cleft in the sandstone. During the years the cleft was scoured deeper and the gorge of Wadi Mujib was formed.

I usually love portrait photography while traveling and Petra is full of interesting faces i would love to capture. Unfortunately after leaving the city and checking my photos,  i realized that i had only few photos with local people. I guess i was absorbed by the city but it seems that i couldn't resist on that little face with the stylish dress.

This is the last photo i am sharing from the City of Mysteries and i have the same feelings i had while passing the siq for the exit. Through these photos I have the chance to live again my journey. I feel so lucky I had the privilege to visit one of the New 7 Wonders of the World  as voted from 2000 to 2007 from a selection of 200 existing monuments. 
We spent there around 12 hours including the time for Petra by night show but coming back now i know there were not enough. I definitely need to go back and explore more hidden places of this city further to the siq, the treasury,  the royal tombs and the monastery. I am sure there are more to discover in the 264 square kilometres of this city.

So i have seen this shot several times during my research for this trip but we couldn't resist and i have to admit i bought the scarf especially for this shot 😊
I was wondering if it will be easy to find this spot before arriving there but you don't have to worry about this. At the last 200 meters of the Siq and at the area in front of the Treasury, every 30 sec you will hear the  phrase "you want to go up to the view lady?" from young boys. We bargain and paid 10 JD for 2 people. The path for this spot wasn't easy at all. We had to climb at the mountain for around 10 minutes from a path and at first looked impossible. Good for us, our guide was climbing the mountain like a wild goat and he was able to help us too. .

Relaxing days at the Dead Sea / Hilton after three amazing weeks through Jordan and Israel!

We had to climb for around 40 minutes (850 steps)  as it is hidden high in the hills but it was worth it. 
The Monastery is similar to The Treasury but much bigger, measuring 47m width and 48.3m height. It was built in the 3rd century BCE as a Nabataean tomb. It derives its name Monastery (Dayr in Arabic) from the crosses carved on the inside walls, suggestive of its use as a church in Byzantine times. .

While walking to the Monastery (Al-Deir) young boys are offering a ride with their air condition taxis, Ferrari or Lamborghi. We tried to be polite with each one of them who was talking to us but after listening the same thing for more than 50 times, believe me it wasn't easy to smile and say "no thank you". Definatly is not easy to climb roughly 850 steps but i don't think riding the Lamborghini donkey is an option. Walking there is much more interesting and you have the privilege to admire a difficult to reach monument.

This was our second day to the secret city. Based on our schedule we had 4 hours available but we spent 6 hours there. Since we were already here the previous day, we were supposed to visit the monastery directly and then before leaving, take some photos from the famous spot at the Treasury. Before entering the city we bought and wore the traditional scarfs which were a must for the photos we wanted to take. 
While walking to the Monastery which is around 6km from the entrance we couldn't resist to climb to this beautiful spots at the street of Facadest for photos.

Into the #desert 🐪 we go! For two nights, we call this #bedoiun #inspired camp “#home.” Located within the protected expanse of #wadirum in southern #jordan near the border with Saudi Arabia, our base offers epic sunsets (seriously, wait until you see these photos!), endless #trekking opportunities over #sanddunes and up #sandstonecliffs & nights under a blanket of stars. Speaking of #stars, this famed #destination is where #telawrence aka #lawrenceofarabia became a legend &, in modern times, where #themaritian starring #mattdamon was filmed. Being here feels like we could be on Mars (as long as the red planet has camels, hedgehogs and scorpions, that is!) 😃🌙🌟🌟

The show paid off when a bedouin started playing an instrument and the host was telling some stories about the history of Petra. We were also offered Bedouin tea while the musician was playing some songs. The experience was amazing and magical and if you go there don't forget to look up to the stars. Unfortunately I use my phone for photos so it was impossible to take a good photo of the sky. .

Our second night to Jordan finished with this experience, "Petra by night show". We had the chance to watch the whole procedure since we were already inside. When we bought the tickets the cashier suggested that was better to go out and then walk back together with the others since that was part of the show but the idea to walk over 3km more didn't sound so good.  We had to wait for around 1.5 in the darkness. At first i thought it was a good chance to relax but i have to admit it was the only time from the whole trip that we felt a bit insecured.  At first I was so excited for this experience.  I was so impatien to watch them lighting up more than 1500 and was wondering where they will fit all those candles.  Personnel was working like machines but i had the chance to make an estimation about the number of the candles which were around 400. It seems that the 1500 candles are used to lightup the whole siq also and not only for the Al Khaznen. I was a bit disappointed but at the end of the day the number of the candles wasn't that important. The candlelight made the place look spectacular and we had the chance to take magical photos while nobody was there. .

Contrary to its name, the Roman Theater (Nabataean Theater) was built by the Nabataeans years before the Romans entered Petra. The 2,000-year-old theater was carved into the rock, destroying pre-existing caves and tombs along the way. When the Romans annexed Petra in 106 AD, they expanded the Hellenistic amphitheater to accommodate some 8,500 people, slicing through even more tombs to make room for seats

I was told that the best place to watch the sunset at Wadi Musa is little Petra. Unfortunately we didn't have time to leave Petra and then come back for the night show. Still we were lucky enough to be at the second best place to watch the sunset. If you visit Petra don't skip the royal tombs. We climbed there by accident when we saw some people at the side of the mountain. Climbing is always exciting so we couldn't resist. Except from the royal tombs and the sunset, the view also is amazing from that spot

Tripping Tuesday
.
.
Once upon a time, the streets of Petra were very popular as it was an important business route, connecting middle-east(Egyptian civilization) to China and India (Chinese and Indus valley civilization). But over the time with new trade routes, loots and natural calamities (such as earth quakes) the city got lost, only to be discovered in the 20th century.
.
.
The place featured here is "the Siq". It's the entrance to the city of Petra. What's interesting is the path wasn't always there. This used to be a mountain which got cut naturally over the centuries (air and water erosion) and gave the shape to the smooth walls of the sandstone canyon of the present day.
.
.
Last, here is me. With my amateur travel tools (a gorilla pod, selfie stick and phone) and a desire to scale the world 😎
I generally don't like to get clicked but this was a pure candid (which I liked). 😉

Royal Tombs at Petra took their name from their rich decoration. 
To reach them you have to climb a stairway that leads to the famous Urn Tomb (this fortunately put off most of the visitors so the place is not so crowded)

It dates back to about 70 AD and it may have been the tomb of the Nabatean king, Malchus II who died at that time (Dr. Schmidt-Colinet on the other hand has proposed that this is the tomb of Aretas IV). A rare inscription inside one of the rooms indicates that during the Byzantine Empire, was converted into a church (447 AD by Bishop Jason). They flattened the floor of the tomb and put in an altar.

When you visit the famed #romanruins don’t be alarmed to see Roman soldiers strutting about, because that’s how #jerash rolls. Twice a day, a cast of two dozen or so locals stage a show in the historic #hippodrome (this spectacularly-preserved sports complex dates back to between the 1st and 3rd centuries AD, once seating nearly 15,000 eager spectators). Swipe to see the soldiers in action, chariot racing AND Matt trying his hand at “gladiating.” #surrealreal *

"Bedouins are
Strong as a Rock 
Soft as sand 
Move as wind and
Free like a bird"
-Arkan
During a conversation i had with a local guy outside Al-Khazneh he mentioned that quote. I must admit that at the end of the day I am still confused about those people and what is the truth behind the way the actually live.

"I love places that make you realize how tiny you and your problems are"
.
First day of our visit to Petra and we were lucky enough to be there at the right time in order to take the best photos with no intruders 😊😊😊
So if you have a crazyness with photos try to be there late afternoon of weekdays since during our second visit there which was on Friday the place was crowded and was impossible to take some good photos of Al-Khazneh.
.
The word "Khanzeh" treasure, was given by the local Bedouin tribes behind the belief that the urn on top of the front entrance contained the treasure of a pharaoh.

Al-Khanzeh is carved in a pink rock, ranging in color from white to pink, yellow and tawny. The facade leads to the grave serves as a tomb for the Nabataean king Aretas III and subsequently as a place of worship.

The Bedouin of Petra got the name B'doul which means "switched" in Arabic. They went from being Nabataeans to Muslims.
They lived among the tombs and caves for over 170 years, but after Petra became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the mid-1980s, many B'doul were forced to abandon their semi-nomadic life for the nearby, purpose-built settlement of Umm Sayhoun, where they still live today.
The B'doul go to Petra every day to act as tour guides and provide local colour - from music and entertainment to camel and donkey rides.

Petra is believed to have been settled as early as 9,000 BC, and it was possibly established in the 4th century BC as the capital city of the Nabataean Kingdom.
The earliest recorded historical reference to Petra was when the Greek Antigonids raided the city in 312 BC.

"Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale"
-Hans Christian Andersen
Although we were so excited to see The Treasury for the first time still we were stuck in the Siq taking photos of every corner.
The Siq is the main road that leads to the city, starts from the Dam and ends at the Treasury.  It is a rock canal that measures 1200 meters in length, 3 to 12 meters in width and reaches up to 80 meters in height. .

Perched in a wild, remote landscape, Shobak Castle wins over even the most castle-weary visitor. It's especially imposing when seen from a distance, as it sits on a dramatic hill (formerly called Mons Realis, or the Royal Mountain), imposing its might on the surrounding countryside. .

I was so happy we bumped into this place since i have seen it in photos some months ago but completely forgot about it while planning this trip to Jordan. Unfortunately we didn't have anything from Cyprus to leave there so i guess i will have to go back again one day. 
A hotel created out of a Volkswagen Beetle and placed in the middle of the Jordanian desert , next to the Shobak castle, claims to be the world's smallest hotel.

A hotel created out of a Volkswagen Beetle and placed in the middle of the Jordanian desert , next to the Shobak castle, claims to be the world's smallest hotel. . . . #sharejordan  #visitjordan  #travelawesome  #ig_jordan  #shareyourjordan  #TravelBug  #thattravelblog  #lonelyplanet  #justgoshoot  #worlderlust  #AdventureCulture  #worldcaptures  #natgeo  #hiking_community  #peoplewhoadventure  #allofexplore  #passionpassport  #exploresgteam  #allaboutadventures  #wonderful_places  #travel_exploring  #beautiful_photographers  #explore  #travel  #travellerstodolist  #destination_worldpix  #asia_vacations  #travelphotography  #travelblogger  #beautifuldestinations 
The city flourished until the mid-eighth century CE, when the 749 Galilee earthquake destroyed large parts of it, while subsequent earthquakes (847 Damascus earthquake) contributed to additional destruction. .

The Cardo Colonnaded Street of Jerash -Still paved with the original stones – the ruts worn by chariots are still visible – the 800m Cardo was the architectural spine and focal point of Jerash. An underground sewage system ran the full length of the Cardo and the regular holes at the sides of the street drained rainwater into the sewers.

Hidden for centuries in sand before being excavated and restored over the past 70 years, Jerash reveals a fine example of the grand, formal provincial Roman urbanism that is found throughout the Middle East, comprising paved and colonnaded streets, soaring hilltop temples, handsome theatres, spacious public squares and plazas, baths, fountains and city walls pierced by towers and gates.

The earliest Arab/Semitic inhabitants, who lived in the area during the pre-classical period of the 1st millennium BCE, named their village Garshu. The Romans later Hellenized the former Arabic name of Garshu into Gerasa (Ancient Greek: Γέρασα). Later, the name transformed into the Arabic Jerash.

Oval Plaza of Jerash measures 90mx80m and is surrounded by a broad sidewalk and colonnade of 1st century AD Ionic columns. There are two alters in the middle, and a fountain was added in the 7th Century AD. This square structure now supports a central column, which was recently erected to carry the Jerash Festival Flame.

Nymphaeum Temple of Jerash - This ornamental fountain was constructed in 191AD and dedicated to the Nymphs. Such fountains were common in Roman cities, and provided a refreshing focal point for the city. Water cascaded through seven carved lion's heads into small basins on the sidewalk and overflowed from there through drains and into the underground sewage system
