Tourism between India and Jordan is flourishing and the intrepid Indian traveller is visiting Jordan in increasing numbers. While Jordan is known for the Rose Red ancient rock city of Petra, it offers much more to the modern Indian traveller, from the Jordan Valley, fertile and ever changing; to stunning desert canyons of Wadi Rum, to the gorgeous blue waters of the Red Sea in Aqaba to the Biblical sites and the natural wonders and therapeutic powers of the Dead Sea.
