Petra was the main topic in John William Burgon's Poem Petra, referring to it as the inaccessible city which he had heard described but had never seen. The poem was awarded the Newdigate Prize in 1845:

It seems no work of Man's creative hand,

by labour wrought as wavering fancy planned;

But from the rock as if by magic grown,

eternal, silent, beautiful, alone!

Not virgin-white like that old Doric shrine,

where erst Athena held her rites divine;

Not saintly-grey, like many a minster fane,

that crowns the hill and consecrates the plain;

But rose-red as if the blush of dawn,

that first beheld them were not yet withdrawn;

The hues of youth upon a brow of woe,

which Man deemed old two thousand years ago,

match me such marvel save in Eastern clime,

a rose-red city half as old as time.

A magical place.
It left some special memories for us.


Hello David

What a magical looking place. I have seen many images of this place. You captured it well with relation to size of man and the pillars. Thanks for sharing this great place.


Hi David,
Clever camera work with this image showing scale of size with this perfect symmetry of the building as a striking feature.
