JORDAN-EXPLORE ANCIENT COUNTRY

Jordan Petra
Jordan-Mount-NeboWhen traveling to Jordan, it is necessary to make a list of what do you like to see. The reason is the abundance of content that Jordan offers and time is never on your side. There are times when we want time to stand still and wait a bit to absorb all the good around us and it is precisely such moment’s makes this Middle Eastern country.

Each of us surely was viewing pictures of the New Seven Wonders of the World mostly because these “miracles” sometimes have incomprehensible beauty. One such place is the fascinating city of Petra, the new wonder of the world. Petra translated means “rock” that will be understandable when you know that the whole city is actually carved into the rock. Those magical places can be reached only by a narrow mountain trail or rocky gorge, which reaches a height of 200 meters. However, such a “bumpy” road is worth the effort because what awaits you is according to some the most beautiful place in the world. Although once upon a time was an important trading city, in the seventh century, the last residents left the city so we can say that is the “lost“. Later, people believed that it exists, but did not know exactly where it is, until the Swiss researcher did not reveal this city carved into the rock and he immediately put on the list the biggest benefits of mankind. Fascination with the possibility of building the city in the rock leads the visitor. One of the most important buildings is the Treasury Khazne al-Firaun. The beautiful architectural buildings were built, more precisely, carved in the first century BC, while some still stay in the second century during the reign of Hadrian. You can recognize the great influence of Roman culture and the city of Roman amphitheater which contains a whopping 5,000 places. In addition, the city has many tombs and monasteries that rise with their beauty and function as a work of art sculptor, not a functional building.

Jordan is wondrous country

Jordan Wadi RumAlthough we can write a lot about Petra, Jordan offers another, no less fascinating place – the desert of Wadi Rum. Most are at the thought of the desert remember the heat, lack of water and tedious expanses of sand. This desert is anything but that. The amazing range of colors is changing depending on the position of the sun, an experience that can never be forgotten. In addition, in the desert, you can experience one of the most beautiful sunset and dawn. After this experience, probably never again you will not look on the same way the nature around you.

It would probably be a great pleasure to tell the story to your friends how you have stayed at the lowest point in the world. Of course, it is the Dead Sea located 394 meters below sea level. Moreover, the salt concentration is such that it is impossible to sink. Although the taste of water is not exactly the most perfect, swimming in it certainly is, and healing mud may help drain all the bad energy from your body. But at least the same impression you can get a view from Mount Nebo. Top of that mountain was the place where Moses saw the Promised Land and therefore, that part of the Jordan, the most sacred place in the country. The mountain is possible to enjoy the view of the Dead Sea, Jerusalem and the Jordan River.


In the end, there should be a few lines about the Jordanian capital city of Amman. We can say that he is the opposite of all previously described. This city is described as a modern center that is not inferior to the leading western centers. Still, we are in the Middle East so that Amman consists of two parts that are totally different. The eastern part of the Islamic, we can say and conservative. Here you can study the life of traditional Jordanian population and to understand how it differs from our everyday lives. The western part of the modern, full of cafes, galleries and gives another picture residents Jordanian capital. But you can `t fully feel and enter life Jordanians if you have not visited both parts of the city and experience all of its charms.

MACHU PICCHU-UNIQUE ANCIENT CITY

Machu Picchu 1
Machu Picchu Main TempleMachu Picchu is located in Cusco Region in Peru. Train is the only transport to the famous site. The ride to the last stop in the small town of Aquas Caliente (hot springs) takes about 3.5 hours. There are several types of train, from a humble student to lavish and expensive. The entire length of the route line running parallel with the river Urubamba and her curves. Upon arrival in Aquas Caliente passengers boarding in mini buses that climb sharp hairpin bends over a length of 8 km, to the Machu Picchu site. And then you get a sight that can`t conjure up any images of the world. This is an absolute beauty and indescribable peace. The sun casts mysterious shadows on the surrounding peaks. Machu Picchu Temple of SunDeep in the abyss spotless the turbulent Urubamba of which in some places is not shared even fences. Most mysterious site in the middle of lush vegetation and humid subtropical climate, the high, inaccessible summit, the lost city of Machu Picchu is the best preserved archaeological site from the time of the Incas, and the most important symbol of the Peruvian civilization. The whole site is a blend of harmony and balance between old Inca architecture and natural beauty of the whole region. According to generally accepted chronology, built in 1438, as a royal retreat for the Inca rulers Pachacutec, at an altitude of 2,450 m, hidden among the mountain ridges high above the serpentine bends of the river Urubamba.

Machu Picchu is a place of peace and power

Since it is Hiram Bingham discovered in July 1911, Machu Picchu constantly attracts researchers, archaeologists, esoteric and contemporary pilgrims from all over. The fact is that many cases of excavations taken in the United States and perhaps the world will never see what has been found in the Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu is in excellent condition thanks to the fact that it conquistadors never found, although almost certainly be said that the city was abandoned shortly after their arrival. Machu Picchu is located in the subtropical zone with a mild humid climate, which causes two clearly divided seasons, rainy – from November to March and arid – from April to October.

Machu Picchu Temple of the Three WindowThe resort is located on the narrow ridge, and it is clear that a wall is divided into two parts, agricultural terraces linked numerous steps and paths, and a residential area that is further divided into two architectural units, which leads to the impression that there were different districts. The city is clearly divided into upper and lower portions that separate open spaces or squares. Upper continent consisted of temples, fountains, squares and beautiful buildings while in the lower part of town modest home.

Most of the buildings that had a specific function such as  Temple of the Sun, Temple of the Three Windows and Main Temple, located in the upper part of the city. The city is a complex system of water supply that is supplied from natural sources, squares, streets and buildings different in quality of construction. It is believed that Machu Picchu had about 1,000 inhabitants. In addition to 200 residential houses, the site has a fair number of unique buildings that are considered to have had a ritual function. Judging by the numerous agricultural terraces, this branch was of the utmost importance for the city. Arable land on the terraced grounds exceeded the needs of the population. There was also a channel with a length of 800m to curb the excessive rainfall. After passing through farmland, grassy area, one comes to the Sanctuary, as this market called Bingham, because it consists of the main temple – the most beautiful examples of Machu Picchu architecture, Temple of the Sun – astronomical observatory and the temple with three windows, where an entire wall made from a single piece of stone which are carved three trapezoidal windows. You’ll have a great view of the green plateau and down the stairs that lead to the central square. The sanctuary was built of stone blocks smoothed and blended to perfection. The Incas did not use the mortar already relied on precisely carved blocks, geometry and a good foundation. Their quality buildings for centuries remained almost untouched despite numerous earthquakes. After a short break we will climb on another eighty steps towards the hill to the famous monolith – Inti Watana. Machu Picchu Inti Watana“Inti Watana” (in translation – “a place that catches the sun”), a rectangular stone column with a pedestal and one stair, located on a small hill in the city, is one of the most important places to Machu Picchu. It is still the enigma of whether it is used as an astronomical station or something else. Spanish priests were all similar pillars by the Inca Empire destroyed because they considered objects of worship. The Incas were skilled astronomers and this monolith is used to determine the summer and winter solstice. At the winter solstice, which falls on 21 June (because the seasons in the southern hemisphere is reversed compared to Europe), the high priest tied to a gold disc for Inti Watana which is symbolically represented capture the sun and its introduction to the country for another time cycle. In this way, the Inca priests using these sundials track the changes of the seasons and were able to accurately determine the most suitable date for sowing. Many now believe that it was Inti Watana one of the strongest fields of energy on the planet and has the inherent spiritual and metaphysical power. Indeed, it is simply impossible to find at Machu Picchu, from which a view of the tortuous course of the river Urubamba and the surrounding peaks, among which dominates hajan Picchu, and not feel some magic in the air.
