We expected to see 'more of the same', but little Petra was quite different. It looks more like the place where large groups of camel drivers would stopover, rehydrate, party and sleep. It has large caved with benches carved out of the rocks, huge water cisterns and a cave with fresco paintings of flowers and cherubs in is. At the... More

This is a pretty cool introduction to the amazing features in the area. It is a quick 1 hour tour at most. You will have several Bedouins insisting you need a guide - this is not true and would be a waste of your money, especially at 10 JOD.

Our group visited little Petra the day before the main site. There are a few buildings and good views from the end worth having.

A map at the entrance is self-explanatory. we walked thru' its Siq (shorter and narrower) and saw a few... More

Since it is nearby, I recommend a side trip to Little Petra. En route from Wadi Musa, you pass goatherds and Bedouin tents, and spectacular landscapes. Once there, you can explore at your leisure, as it is not crowded. Evidence of flooding helps to explain why this civilization is no longer residing here. There are carved buildings facades and cave... More

Visiting Little Petra is well worth it. There was only our group visiting the site with our guide. Little Petra is exactly what it says a smaller mor intimate sibling to Petra with time to explore the tombs and ancient murals. Lovely peaceful mystical and time to explore on your own a perfect opportunity to learn the local history culture... More

If you're looking to see the magnificence of the carved out building and are concerned about the steep prices of Petra then visit little Petra. Its a short cab ride, hitch-hike, or bus ride North of Wadi Mousa.
