Rome was the dominant imperial power and ruled for centuries. The Roan governor, Sextius Florentinus, expressed a wish to be buried here. His tomb is quite different to the Nabatean tombs, it has a variety of shades and colors. By the way, Petra only exists because sandstone is easy to work.

A former Ronan Governor, Sextus Florentius wanted to be buried in Petra. He got his wish and us now interred along the line of Royal Tombs high above the main Wadi opposite to the amphitheatre.
The tombs are beautifully intricate and the differing colours if the sandstone and the affect of the shining sun give them a wonderful glow.
Look for the massive Jordan flag fluttering on the high rock to the tight as you round the treasury and straighten into the Outer Siq. The tombs are above that and a little walk beyond the flag.

Nobody was there, we were really alone. Do not miss the scriptures engraved on the entrance. Otherwise, like all the tombs there, it's beautifully coloured. No so easy to find. Follow the sign but stay near the rocks on the right.

To arrive at Sextius Florentinus Tomb we surrounded the Royal Tombs Hill, when we walk few hundred yards. The inscription on the tomb entrance shows that Sextus Florentinus was the Roman Governor of the province.
The interesting part is that we can number the graves inside the tomb - 5 on the back wall, and 3 on the right side wall.

Just like everything you see inside Petra, this facade of a face for the halls inside is just as magical and phenomenal. This place is ahead of the Royal Tombs. One of the last tombs built in Petra, this part was built probably by the Romans. Go exploring in this part of valley as you won't see many tourists here.

This is one of the royal tombs - the urn which is carved ornately in the name of the early Roman Governers in Province Of Arebia who was buried here . A real peep into the history . Must have a good guide to show you around while being in Petra . A must visit place .

As we make our way through the extensive paths and roadways that make up the Petra Heritage park you can't help think of the enormous undertaking that the planners and stoneworkers had to consider and go through to achieve these structures.
We heard that there are even more ruins that were the practice area for the actually city works just to get the techniques correct for the community.

This tomb is a little different from others because of the Roman touch in its architecture. The tomb is huge and beautiful. Inside the tomb, the exposed carved rock has bands of amazing colors that make it seem out of this world. It's a little ahead of the Royal tombs but worth the walk.
