The Ancient City of Petra

Possibly as far back as 312BC, the Nabataeans founded the city of Petra in modern day Jordan. Over the years it’s been featured in many movies including Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Regardless of that, it’s definitely one of my personal favorite monuments from the ancient world.

LEGO builder Vitreolum built a stunning microscale version of the famous facade of the city for a microscale contest. The details that he was able to include at such a small scale are just amazing. The rounded dome in the center and the angles of the roof leave no doubt what you’re looking at when you see this image.
