Petra the forgotten City - View the Treasury in Petra as Indiana Jones did.

The City of Petra was hidden in the mountains of Jordan for thousands of years when a young Swiss explorer Johan Ludwig Burckhardt rediscovered it in 1812.

Temples, tombs, and other buildings are all carved out of the sandstone cliffs, wich also gives it the name the "rose red city"

In the last scenes of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade the Treasury serves as a secret temple lost for hundreds of year.

And that is actually what it is. This place is impossible to capture in a normal still image. You have to visit it, or the next best - You can see it in a cubic QTVR as here in Greg Downings panorama made last year as an assignment for Intel.

Greg visited some of the most famous places in the world during this assignment, but he describes the visit at Petra as the most memorable.
