Petra By Night

Complete your Petra experience with a visit of Petra by Night. This event is a magical way to see part of the rock city by candlelight and explore the old city, which has become a world wonder. This experience is organized three nights per week, every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Petra by Night starts at 20:30 from the Visitor Centre and lasts for around 2 hours. I starts with walking the entire Siq (the small canyon) to the Treasury, lit with over 1,000 candles to bring the major attraction due to the spectacular view it has.

Your evening starts with a stroll down the Siq in complete silence to take in the incredible sights around you. Once you arrive at the Treasury, known as Al Khazneh, you will be requested to be seated and listen to the traditional Jordanian music played by the local Bedouins. It will make you excited, just when you think the music is complete, and where you see a musician with his flute appears out of the dark Treasury, making his way through the candles to stand before the crowds.

Following that you will be entertained with a story about Petra and the Nabateans where it adds more interest when you know the nice informative and cultural about the past. The night is complete with the traditional Bedouin mint tea, to a nice warm up to cherish the experience you had with this great event Petra By Night!
