I loved going to do this before our day trip in Petra. It added mystery when walking through the Siq, that we had never seen it before. I felt a bit like cattle when we reached the end and were told to sit in rows on dirty mats close to one another to hear some music and drink some very sweet tea. Overall a nice experience to start your time in Petra as a teaser.

Beautiful & stunning to see Petra by Night. The Bedouins played the flute & sang a song & served Bedouin tea. Stunning view to see the treasury lit up with 1000's of candles around it.

A highlight - a must for this trip. A thousand candles light a curious walk through the Siq, casting shadows upwards to the clean night. Stars and moonlight appear around a corner, then hidden in the gloom of a rock canopy, then the haunting sound of a single string Rababa cello invites you to the treasury - and as you sip mint tea,time melts into history. Sublime.

Well, if walking through the Siq by candle light is not enough, listening to bedouin music in front of the Treasury is a nice experience, we enjoyed it.
Since there will be a lot of people, stay at the end of the queue, so you'll avoid the noise and the stupid people taking pictures with flashes blinding you, the show doesn't start until everyone has arrived.

A candle-lit walk through the Siq to the Treasury, where you are serenaded in traditional style. The perfect way to see the Treasury for the first time.
