The Kings's Highway is a north-south trade route in Jordan connecting Amman with Petra. In ancient times luxury goods were being traded along this road between Syria and Arabia. A number of interesting sites lie along this old trade route: the biblical site of Mt Nebo, the city of Madaba with its church of the map and the impressive desert scenery to the south.
