Visit Jordan!


Little Petra is named Al-Beidha in Arabic, meaning 'the white one'. It is an important archaeological site in Jordan . This site is only a few kilometers from Petra and it is literally hidden away in the center of a mountain.

It is thought to have been one of the commercial areas of Petra where caravans of traders would constantly arrive.


A street of dining halls. Most of the facades have been washed away by floods but the halls still remain.
