Off the beaten track but still worth a visit. It's more accessible than Petra and you can still climb over it (as several little children were anxious to show us). The visit only takes an hour (Max.) and is mostly in the shade. Well worth a visit.

Worth a drive around if you have transport. A few little sites to see and usually very quiet so no crowds.

I really enjoyed this visiting Little Petra. Being much, much smaller than Petra, it is very easy to see everything in one morning or afternoon. Aside from the wonderful fact that there are no crowds (I saw 2 other people), one can climb around and see virtually every square inch of every rock. There are a number of steps carved... More

I was really amazed witnessing this marvelous pieces of arts created during the ancient time where people has no access ot technology and do not know what are happening on the other side of the globe. The creative minds these Nabateans posses are divine gifts which they expressed on these sculptures and one could really see how intricate the designs... More

'Little Petra' should not be missed - it gives the clearest possible picture of how business was conducted by travellers from all points of the compass. It is like standing at a crossroads of live history.

Little Petra is 10 km away from Petra and the Nebataeans used it as a resting place during their long journey. There are remains of a temple, triclinias, biclinias ( meeting places for feasts and celebrations) carved from the sand stone. The Bedouins were living here until few years back, UNESCO dislodged them in order to restore the historical treasure.... More

Just a 10 minute ride from the Petra visitors centre is Little Petra. Nice to start when you arrive in the afternoon to Wadi Musa, as an appetizer for Petra. Climb up to see the fresco in the 'Painted Biclinium'! Follow the siq until the end, go up the stairs and find yourself in an oasis of silence (if you... More
