Complete your Petra experience with a visit of Petra Night Show
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, incomparable experience starts by walking the entire Siq to the Treasury
light with around 1,500 candles and nothing else but their small reflections on the rocks.
After walking in the dark for around 30 minutes you will arrive at the entrance to the treasury where even more candles will great you, lighting it up (kinda, but hardly) in all its (pretty dark) glory.
Here you will be (demanded) to sit and wait until the “show” starts.
The show is a man playing the flute, then another man playing the flute. For 30 minutes. Then one of the Bedouins tells a short story of the history.
Following that you will feel the beat entertainment with a story about Petra and the Nabateans where it adds more interest when you know the nice informative and cultural about the past.
Petra by Night runs every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week, starts at 20:30 PM from Petra Visitor Center and delivers you back by licensed guide to the Visitor Center around 22.30 PM.
