Jordan is not known to many.. Even I didn't hear much about it before we planned to go there . .. It's the country which houses one of the seven wonders of world.. PETRA.. The magnificent beast which speaks for itself..
On landing Amman airport, capital of Jordan, our car picked us up.. We left for Petra..The whole journey was picturesque..On both sides of the road you can just see desert.. And even sand storms from a very close distance.Felt like some Bollywood movie road jouney..😀😀.. On way we visited Shobak castle.. It was an abandoned one but caught a glimpse about the ancient history of Jordan.. Such a giant castle but no one living there..
Around evening we reached Petra.. Checked in our hotel.. We had booked tickets for night candlelight trek in Petra.. Was super excited and anxious to go..
We reached the main gate of Petra before time.. There were around 50-70 people more waiting there.. Our guide approached and we had to follow him inside..
Okk ...😍😍When you first set foot between the giant canyons On both side, with a pitch dark starry night ,just lit with candles at both sides of the marked path.. It was both scary and mystic.. Looking up the walls, you can't even measure the height, they are so huge...
We didn't stop much in-between and over ahead with the crowd because honestly was scared too.. like some ghost movie..Gradually about 45 min later, the canyon opened with the view of magnificent PETRA.. Our eyes were wide open.. It was so beautiful, so grand.. In front of Petra, shok ground was lit with candles ..They garaged fr a small musical show for the visitors displaying their cultural heritage.. They were playing instruments beautifully...After the visit we went back to hotel..Overnight stay in Petra.
