Al-Beidha - Little Petra, Petra - Wadi Musa

(4.5/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Although it is about 20min for the city, but leaving the site at sun set and coming back to Petra, you'll stop to see the mountain as well as the city lights.  more »
  • Didn't know that there was, very good place that need you greater promotion and attention, a very beautiful experience!

  • My recommendation is to see it before Petra, this very good, well worth a visit it is small compared with Petra but do not hesitate to visit.
