'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.

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

There were no hustlers here and we had a great tour guide. It was a pretty spot and the mosaics of the cherubs are still visible. Learned the history from our guide and were able to look at our leisure, really glad we did this made up for Petra.

There is Big Petra but too commercial. This place is less hectic and you have a chance to really look at the buildings and the artifacts. It's also free.

I was so glad to visit Al-Beidha a day before visiting Petra. Nice and well maintained place. It will give you an idea to what to expect in Petra. Not to miss. It takes an hour to visit the place.

We hired a Bedouin guide to take us through the mountains--on his goat trek--all the way from Little Petra back to Petra. Very interesting, no people. A bit of a scramble but not too much elevation gain.

What a surprise! This was such an unexpected pleasure, we had not even realised it was there. The neolithic village good have done with more information - especially if you do not have a guide. But the Nabatean ruins were worth seeing.
