  • Sandra Jelly

    Sandra is an artist, yogini, and an equus coach. She started exploring yoga in 2001 in Amsterdam. In 2009, following her inner wish of living her passions, she packed her brushes and her yoga mat and put on her horse boots to go for a sabbatical to Petra, Jordan. It was the beginning of her adventure of discovering and expressing herself in the most authentic way.

Petra

The Red Rose city, half as old as time has been inhabited since prehistoric times. A must-visit for those traveling in Jordan. Petra was a Nabatean caravan- city and an important cross road between Arabia, Egypt and Syria-Phoenica.

The Nabateans were a kind of predatory nomads who played an important role in transporting the goods. By charging road tax they gained great wealth and power. This was used to carve and build their facades in the rocks. The nomads gained different kind of views on architecture which resulted in a design of the tombs in which you still can see influences of other tribes, nations or empires.

The history of the Petra site is endless, many Nabatean Kings, threats from other Kingdoms, occupations of the Romans, Christians and later even by the Bedouins. In 1812 Johann Ludwig Buckhardt succeeded to rediscover Petra, which was kept secret for a long time. In 1929 the first excavations took place.

Little Petra

The area of Petra is huge and even in the neighbor village, Little Petra, you can find tombs. The Siq al Barid (the cold Siq) was kind like a suburb of Petra. Here the goods were saved and registered. Several temples can be found which must have been offices, houses and warehouses.

In one of the facades even frescoes can be seen. Although these are damaged by Bedouins who were previously living in this caves, still some of the images can be seen; extremely rare heritage. Take a pocket light when you want to see them.
