A unique way to see the historic, rock-cut buildings and tombs, Petra By Night brings visitors up close to this 4th century BCE trading city. Plan ahead to attend a tour of the ruins, which begins with a walk through the Siq, a crevice between tall walls of rock that creates a natural tunnel for human passage. Lit by over 1,500 candles, the pathway and illuminated buildings at its end glow orange. Performers play Bedouin music and visitors each receive a cup of tea during the concert. Dress warmly and wear comfortable shoes to prepare for the short desert hike. Tours occur only at specific times and are limited, so plan ahead. Arrange to visit Petra By Night and other attractions in Petra - Wadi Musa using our Petra - Wadi Musa holiday planner.

  • Must see, time schedule and look at not only the treasure house, Petra by night enjoy

  • comparing to the 17JD price, the whole show is a crab. 20 minutes of music plus poem reading with candles setting ,and that's all. 
  • We went to the 'show' of Petra Night very excited by all the positive reviews we had read, and the truth that has been a real disappointment. Arriving at the Treasury after half an hour on the way, sit yourself on a mat, you get half a cup of tea, and raisins 30 minutes listening to a man playing the flute and other singing and playing a stringed instrument Bedouin, and after 30 min, turn on a few lights to take some pictures for a few minutes, and then each one to his house. We had read that they also have some history of Petra, but they even said a few words. And all for the price of 17 JD (€ 22). It is inevitable to feel cheated and disappointed. The experience is not bad, but it is like everything else in this country: nice but too expensive for what they offer, and the inevitable feeling that you are stealing in your face every minute. I would not recommend it.
