I came here after a trip to Petra and it was equally amazing despite it being of a smaller size. If you appreciate history and ancient architecture then you must never miss this place and the drive to get there was very surreal! It's unreal!...More

Little Petra is a significantly smaller version of Petra but nonetheless an interesting spot. It is just down the road a few miles and you will need a car or driver.

It's a nice little site, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it. We had our car, so it was something nice to do. The drive there is fun. The good points are that it's free, empty and easy to cover. I would...More

Not a must-see attraction, but if time permits do have a look. A good introduction to the architecture and culture.

Visited after Petra. Loved this place, very quiet compared to Petra but very nice. Our guide Rabae was very good as he explained the history behind little Petra which made it so much more significant.

The site has potential but is not maintained and very dirty. Lots of flies and animal litter all over the place. It's a pity that the Government is not maintaining this site.

Hello traveller! Little Petra isn't that close to the main Petra site. Little Petra is very small, but pretty. Worth seeing if you have the time. No need for a guided tour, but you may want a driver to take you there. But... More
