Petra was the central meeting point of the Nabatean spice routes which originated from the Persian Gulf, Western Arabia, and the Red Sea. About two thousand years ago Petra became the capital of the Nabatean Empire. The city was so renowned that one of its kings, Aretas IV, is even mentioned in the Bible.
