Welcome to Destination: History, where we tackle interesting and fascinating places and take a stroll through the history behind them.

Today’s destination sees us in a rock city with spectacular buildings carved out of the very rock itself. At one time in its history this place was one of the most important trading areas in the world. And yet, almost nothing is known about the people who made it happen.




Destination: History is a collection of interesting and fascinating places and the history behind them.
