Jordan - Little Petra (Al-Beidha)

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.

Farther inside is a magnificent monument high on the side of the cliff.
