After the arrival of the Romans, Petra continued its expansion. It became the trading and commercial capital of the region. An earthquake at the end of the 7th century AD destroyed the city's water system, and Petra soon came into decline. Petra was abandoned in the 12th century AD, with the conquest by Saladin of the Middle East.
