Transcript of HISTORY
Along the other side of the rock is a clay water pipe that also carries water into the city.
A Museum in Petra has these two pieces of pipe that the nabataeans put in the cities to transport water throughout the homes and needed areas. The pipes are so advanced that the clay pipes have tapered ends, that we modern people only figured out in the last two hundred years.
Further along the street, the water pipe that was running down at your feet is now running far up above the face of the rock. With the Nabataeans they kept the water pipes dropping slowly so as to provide water pressure within he city center.
Throughout the city of Petra are hundreds of water cisterns. Every possible drop of rainwater, as well as the water piped into the city was stored and used later if needed.
Petra was founded along the ancient trade routes between Arabia, Egypt, and the Mediterranean Sea. As a center for trade, the capital became very wealthy and powerful. Petra flourished for centuries even after it as taken over by the roman empire in A.D. 106. Eventually, Rome moved the center of trade away from Petra and the city's importance slowly faded. over time the city that was once vital capital was abandoned and fell into ruins.
