Petra is an ancient city that was carved out of rocks by the Nekean people. They mastered the art of finding vast amounts of water whilst in the desert terrain. There is a 1.5 km natural canyon between the rocks leading to the city, ending at the most famous building within Petra, which is called the Treasury of Pharaoh. The splendour of this place is emphasised by its inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage list and as one of the seven new wonders of the world. Hidden from the world behind the Siq Canyon for over 800 years, after the trade routes in the Middle East changed, the city appeared to the western world in 1812, discovered by the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt. However, it only became famous after the making of the film "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade", where the building of Khazneh - called the "Pharaoh's Treasury" - served in the filming of the temple protecting the Holy Grail.
