If you have time for one side trip from Amman, make it Petra. Carved 2,300 years ago by the Nabataeans, this southern Jordan UNESCO-listed rock city is one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. This private tour whisks you there and back in a day by private air-conditioned vehicle and with an itinerary customizable to your wishes. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included, with optional local guiding at Petra at own expense.

The Obelisk Tomb is probably your first encounter with Nabataean culture while visiting the Petra complex. Can be easily spotted along the road towards the Siq.

We were hardly inside the Petra main gate when we had our first glimpse of Nabataean workmanship. It was just the start of hundreds of photos our group took that day! The Obelisk Tomb is named after the four pyramid-shaped obelisks that decorate the top of this two-story structure. The bottom story is called a Triclinium (dining hall) for funeral celebrations. The top story is the actual tomb.

This is quite the first attraction you encounter in Petra. It also combines symbols from different old civilization to symbolize the welcoming of all visitors

From the Visitor Centre just a short walk from the main trail, at your left, Obelisk Tomb is directly across the Djinn Blocks, right beside the road. It seems like it was built under an Egyptian influence. The facade of the four Obelisks, together with the eroded human figure in the centre, probably represented the five people buried in the tomb.  The façade of the Obelisk Tomb measures 15.98 m in width and 12.3 m in height. On the day that we visited it was packed with tourists like us. It was not easy to take a picture without people. Happy Travelling!
