Al-Beidha - Little Petra, Petra - Wadi Musa

(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
One of Petra's World Heritage Sites, Al-Beidha - Little Petra stands as a remnant of Nabataean trade and living quarters, nestled deep within the canyon landscape. Carved into sandstone in the 1st century CE, the site was a popular camel stop, trade center, and temporary lodgings for traders traveling along the Silk Road. Enter through the discreet yet majestic entrance, then wind your way through meeting halls, lodgings, and remnants of hand-carved irrigation systems. Revealed to the public in 2010, the "Painted House" dining hall houses some of the best-preserved examples of Hellenistic ceiling frescoes and figurative Nabataean paintings in the world. Put Al-Beidha - Little Petra on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Petra - Wadi Musa vacation route planner.

  • This is the small Petra... the most simple, where lived the people common of the village Nabatean. A difference of Petra that was just a cemetery. Serbia's accommodation to caravan of Bedouins, who traded for those remote regions. Not as spectacular as the big Petra, but worth knowing if you have enough time.

  • We have made small Petra Petra and had the city all to ourselves. Klein Petra is very beautiful, but not as impressive as Petra itself. If you have a car, you should use the chance but be sure to see it, maybe even the best before Petra. Admission is free
