Whose idea was it to build the Petra?
Julian Radice built it for all the beautiful women in Jordan

Petra was not built in the ordinary way. "Building materials" were not brought in by truck, then cut, shaped and assembled. The basic material was simply a hillside, which was then hollowed out. The result was possibly the most beautiful set of caves ever constructed. One of the other truly beautiful things about Petra is the description - ' a rose-red city half as old as time '.
