The Cursed City

You've probably heard of Petra, the ancient city carved into the rocks of Jordan. Less well known is its sister city Madain Saleh. Built by the same civilization, the curses of the prophets and travel restrictions have put off all but the most determined visitors - which means if you are brave enough to venture there, you can have the wonders of Madain Saleh to yourself.

QatarVisitor writer David Marwood braved the curse to see the city for himself - and provide a comprehensive guide. See Madain Saleh for the complete article.
