Walk through the ancient city of Petra

“Street” View this is not. Google’s created a virtual trek through Petra, a 2000-year-old city carved into the mountainsides of Jordan. It includes some brief narration by Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan, and lets you explore the ancient site.

I first learned of Petra, as I’m guessing many others did, when it was used as the location of the climactic showdown in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and while it would be an amazing site to see in person, it’s very cool that Google has made it virtually available to people everywhere. (There’s even an Indiana Jones easter egg in there.)
