The Siq, Petra Overview

It is the ancient main entry to Petra, and is a mile long, narrow valley

Also known as the Siqit, it is the main enterance to the city of Petra. It is a narrow gorge and is about a mile long. The path starts at the dam and ends at the Treasury (Al Khazneh). The most impressive thing about the Siq are the limestone patterns which are carved all along the rocks. There are channels on either side of the Siq to draw water from Wadi Musa. A valley outside leading to the Siq is known as Bab al Siq, where you can see massive square monuments carved out of the rock, known as Djinn rocks. YouÍll also see an Obelisk Tomb and even four pyramids.
