4.5/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • We visited this Wadi early in the morning and it was a wonderful peaceful experience. Just us ,a Beduin musician and a herder with his goats..... 
  • Visit recommended before see Petra. Much smaller and less touristy but beautiful all the same. For visiting it takes little time. The street and the landscape leading to the archaeological site.
