The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (المملكة الأردنّيّة الهاشميّة), an Arab country in Southwest Asia, is spanning the southern part of the Rub Al Kali down to the Gulf of Aqaba.
The Nabateans constructed it as their capital city around 100 BC. The site remained unknown until 1812, when it was rediscovered by Johann Ludwig Burckhardt.
