'Indiana Jones' city – Petra, the setting for the finale of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," is Jordan's biggest tourist attraction. Yet visitor figures have plummeted due to turbulent times in the Middle East.
Mysterious tombs – The Corinthian Tomb and the Palace Tomb are two of the Royal Tombs in Petra.
Important source of income – Without oil reserves Jordan is heavily reliant on tourism, which contributes 15% to its GDP.
Vantage point – A view from the Royal Tombs. Despite its relative tranquility, Jordan's tourism industry has been hit by the 2010 Arab Spring and civil war in Syria.
Lack of resources – "Petra has been on the World Heritage List since 1985 and we were voted second of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, but the dip in income from tourism means there's no money for development," says Mohammad Abdelaziz, curator of the Petra Archeological Park.
The Great Temple – Spanning 7,000 square meters, the Great Temple Complex is one of the archeological sites that requires stabilizing.
Exciting development – A recent discovery of a new massive monument may stimulate development and interest in Petra again. Archaeologists believe that more than 80% of Petra is yet to be uncovered.
Preserved from destruction – Once a great trading city of an Arab tribe known as the Nabataeans, Petra's massive buildings -- carved top to bottom into the cliff face -- were preserved from destruction thanks to its hidden location down a narrow valley, or Al Siq.
Treasury – The Khazneh, or Treasury, is visible at the end of Al Siq. It was forgotten by the outside world for more than 1,000 years until a Swiss explorer was led there by a local Bedouin in 1812.
Involving the community – "Jordanians were not identifying with their environment," says Aysar Akrawi, founder of the Petra National Trust. "The rocks of Petra were a source of income for them -- not of identity." Akrawi's team helps local teenagers identify with their heritage so they'll look after the country's historic sites.
