We have selected Angus McIntyre Pages as the world's very best website on Petra.

The Angus McIntyre Pages website is produced by Angus McIntyre, who describes himself as a traumatised victim of the browser wars. His interests include South East Asia, World War II poems, and wine. His website has a substantial section on the ancient Nabatean capital of Petra, in Jordan. Petra was famously described as 'a rose-red city half as old as time' by the minor Victorian poet John William Burgon.

The website contains a clickable map of Petra, with links to illustrated articles on seven of the most famous monuments in the site. These include: The Siq, The Khazneh, The High Place of Sacrifice, Royal Tombs, and the Tomb of Sextius Florentius. The website also contains links to other Petra websites.
