Dam and tunnel

Constructed over the original Nabatean dam right before the Siq to control the floodwaters of Wadi Musa, and divert them through a rock-cut tunnel into Wadi Mudhlim.

The remnants of the diversion dam, Muthlim tunnel, water channels, aqueducts, reservoirs and cisterns are an outstanding example of water engineering dating from the first centuries BC to AD.
