Dead Sea - Lowest spot on earth

 

At 1,312 feet below sea level, the super-salty body of water (actually a lake) is the low point of any tour in this Middle Eastern kingdom. The Dead Sea, in fact, is the lowest spot on earth.

 

The Dead Sea is nine times saltier than normal seawater. (Because of the high mineral content, nothing can live in this water-that's why they call it dead.)

 

Al Khazneh - Incredible edifice

 

A Roman temple hewn from the rock - Al Khazneh. It is an incredible edifice. Petra was built in the sixth century BC as the capital city of the Nabataean Kingdom, and the "Roman temple" is in fact a Nabataean tomb. The Nabataeans were an ancient people made up of Arabs from southern Jordan, Canaan and northern Arabia who commanded the peninsula's main trading network for over seven centuries. They were sophisticated merchants wealthy enough to buy off threatening Roman armies on more than one occasion.
