Google brings Street View to 30 Historical Sites in Jordan


Google added over 30 historical sites in Jordan to its virtual Street View service, including the entire city of Petra.

The project was announced by Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan on the official Google Maps blog, and she also narrated the promotional video for the project launch which you can watch below.

Besides the Rose-Red City, virtual tourists can visit attractions like Mount Nebo, The Madaba Mosaic Map, crusader castles like Al Karak and Ajlun Castle built by Saladin or the Umayyad desert castles of Qasr Amra and Qasr Al Kharana. You can find a complete list of all historical sites that are available on Street View on a dedicated portal.

Other historical sites in the Arab world that can be experienced online include the Pyramids of Giza, the Liwa Desert, and the Burj Khalifa.
