Visit it only if you have time and money for the taxi. Entry is free but as the name suggests it is a mini petra nothing you will miss.

Small but good one to see close to Petra. Surrounded by natural sandstone and very beautiful scenery makes the Visit worthy. A visit during early morning recommended to capture the beauty of hills amidst the Sunrays.

After a short hike you come across the ruins of Little Petra, which was the place where the vendor used to stop before going into Petra. here they would rest, wash and prepare for the market at Petra, where they would sell their wears. The sand rock stone mountains are gorgeous.

Axtually is this so called "little Petra" not small at all. It is one of the biggest tombs of the city. The possible explanation of it's name is that it can be seen as a city in a city.

Visiting Little Petra is well worth the 1/2 hour to 3+ hours you might spend. For those in a rush you only need to allow 30 minutes. For a much more complete experience, take in the 'front' section, and then head up the stairs to experience the view from CamelBoy Camels tea shop, and then hire him to guide you... More

Little Petra - Al Beidha is a marvellous spot that you should not miss if you are in the area. Visit it before the actual Petra archaeological site, but DO visit it. There were no tourists, you need no guide, it is for free, just wonder around. Ask for CamelBOY - Awar, he is there every day. We were so... More

Thankfully we visited here before we went to Petra, as we would have surely been a bit disappointed. It was very beautiful but it didn't really seem like it was maintained as every tomb and cave reeked of urine, feces or had garbage in it. It is significantly quieter than Petra, but there are souvenir shops, including a few up... More

It's called little Petra but it's an amazing place. We like every thing. I like the view from the top of the stairs. It's not far from Petra only 10 km.
