This passage way is a welcome relief from the sun. The engineering that allowed water to flow via channels on either side of this canyon completely boggles my mind. The natural colours of the rock change colours just like a chameleon as the sun hits them at different parts of the day.2016/11/30, David M
It leads to the city. To see trees growing in the crevices and fighting for life. To see the different colors in the walls. Beautiful.2017/01/04, G L Littleton
A natural gorge of 1.2 km, used to be paved by lime stone slabs, and it's the sacred way that leads to the temple (treasury)2017/03/12, Marwan Shwaihat
Bab al Siq is the only entrance to the city of Petra, passing through a very narrow defile that has been naturally carved in the red stone mountains. It's a treat to walk through the narrow defile that leads to the city of Petra. At places, the defile gets so narrow that it is hard to see the sky. The red stone walls of the defile at many places are at 90 degrees to the ground. The path across the defile has been very well maintained and there are rest areas enroute. Total length of the defile is around 8 km. If one is planning to walk, must carry water along and wear shoes that comfortable for a long walk.2017/03/18, KBW 66
