Avdat, Negev desert, Israel

Avdat is a city built by Nabatean tribes in the third century BC. This city was the center of the famous incense route. Here passed the caravans laden with spices on the way to the Mediterranean.

The original resevour was covered. Along the edge of the resevour are the notches where the arches fit into the side walls. This stone roof probably colapsed during an earthquake, and was later dug out when bedouin tribes entered the area.
