The Dam, Petra Overview

The dam stands at the entrance to the Siq

The dam was constructed by the Nabataeans to protect Petra from flash floods. It did so by redirecting flood waters into a tunnel which later came to be called ïthe Dark TunnelÍ. It was renovated by the government in 1963 and then again in 1991, staying true to the original architecture of the Nabataeans both times.
