Al-Beidha - Little Petra, Petra - Wadi Musa

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.

  • A small but interesting little site close to the iconic city - worth a visit if you have an hour or two to spare..  more »
  • I recommend to go and see her before Petra, you will find it as beautiful as it actually is, but see her after seeing the magnificence of Petra unfortunately loses.
