Scholarship on Petra is extensive. Comprehensive bibliographies can be found in Martha Sharp Joukowsky, Petra Great Temple, Volume I: Brown University Excavations, 1993–1997 (Providence: E.A. Johnson, 1998), pp. xvi-xxxiv; Lina Nehmé, Provisional Bibliography on Petra and the Nabataeans (Paris: ERA 2000 CNRS, 1994); Judith McKenzie, The Architecture of Petra (Oxford: Oxford Univ. Press, 1990), pp. 173–180; D. Homès-Fredericq and J.B. Hennessy, Archaeology of Jordan, Vol. I (Leuven: Peeters, 1986); Avraham Negev, Tempel, Kirche, und Zisternen, Ausgrabungen in der Wüste Negev (Stuttgart: Calwer, 1983), pp. 250–254. The best introduction to the site for the general reader in English is still Iain Browning, Petra (London: Chatto & Windus, 1982).
