This area traces a path that follows the course of the Wadi Musa (in Arabic 'Valley of Moses'), the meandering riverbed that flows from Ain Musa ('Spring of Moses') into Petra. It is believed that Ain Musa is the spring that gushed forth when Moses smote a rock in Biblical times. The valley is formed as a result of floodwater erosion and the Nabataeans carved water cisterns and channels to divert the water and channel it into Petra for their use. The Bab el-Siq terminates at the start of the chasm of the Siq. Download
