The Nabataeans, like many other ancient peoples, revered the sun as a source of light and life, and Petra's design reflects that reverence. Many of the city's most sacred spaces are designed to correspond to solar patterns, such as solstices. This meticulous design provides modern scientists and archaeologists with valuable insight into what the Nabataeans valued and how unique Petra must have been.
