The place is nice, but what i really would like to recommend is the ride to Little Petra, is just the most amazing view of Petra City and villages, you can entry for free.

We went to Little Petra when we arrived to kill time. We had an amazing guide, Khalid, who showed us around for 10JD, It was well worth it as he was a wealth of information. It has a lot of history but we saw very few other people there in the hour that we were there, so it is no... More

We visited this before the 'big' Petra and we were impressed. Definitely worth a visit. Wear good shoes as there are some steps and rocks you can climb up if you want.

We spent 3 days in Petra, and so had plenty of time to visit Little Petra. It is about a 15 minute taxi drive from the main entrance to Petra and our hotel organised the driver to take us, wait, and bring us back for 20JD. The place is lovely, and is well worth a visit if you have time.... More

Very good. Try going towards the end of the day or early, and then the site is empty of tourists. An excellent start to see Petra, as it sort of gives you a feel of what's to come in big Petra the next day. Very interesting site. Recommend.

Peaceful and worth a side trip. You can climb freely on the much smaller treasury and in the caves. Herd of goats playing made good entertainment Ok toilets behind the stalls near the car park

Little Petra can be reached from Petra but it is a long hike. I decided to hire a car to take me to the Little Petra entrance nearer to Wadi Musa. It is genuinely like a smaller Petra, Sig and all. The most impressive part is that some of the original painting on the tomb interiors still exist here. They... More

While you are here, make sure you visit the excavated neolthic site from 10,000 years ago. Britain was buried under ice at this time. Remember, this is where modern humans began their control of the soil and learned to become what we are today!

If you have a spare hour, this is definitely worth visiting. It is smaller than Petra and not as well preserved, but you can see the same features, with the added bonus of being able to go into the tombs and caves. There are some large cisterns and you can see the drainage channels carved from the rock in order... More
