Petra by candle light

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Bhaven Jani

Petra, the magical ancient land in Jordan turns almost mystical by night. Candle lamps guide visitors down the mile long Siq and when you reach the Al Khazneh, it is overwhelming to see this sight. People are gathered around these candles which are spread out in front of the Treasury while musicians play soulful music.

Location: Petra, Jordan
