The Borders of Nabataea

The 'Inner Nabataean Kingdom' was located in the Middle East, on the edge of the great Arabian deserts. This crescent shaped area was defined by three distinctive geological barriers:

 Camels in Wadi Musa

 Naqab Escarpment
On the southern board of Nabataea a great cliff extended far out into the desert. Along this cliff, ancient civilizations successively built great
fortresses to protect their villages in the hills from the wild tribesmen of the Hishma desert to the south. This desert is among the wildest, most beautiful deserts of the world, with great mountains rising out of the sandy desert floor. It is home to the famous Wadi Rumm, where thousands of tourists flock every year to experience the majestic raw beauty of the desert.
