Petra is a highlight not just of Jordan but of the entire Middle East, a sublime and mysterious city that sits as an incomparable jewel of ancient architecture. Petra was once an important stop on a Roman trading route, but was only assimilated into the empire in 106 AD. Until then it had been a stronghold of the Nabataen Arab kingdom, whose knowledge of Greek architectural styles is reflected in their astonishing cliff-bound monuments. Today Petra is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Meet at the Petra visitor centre at 20.15 ready for the 20.30 departure for the tour. Start the visit at the mile-long entry gorge, The Siq of Petra, which is mysterious enough in the daytime, however becomes a fairy-tale magical at night, lit only by flickering luminaries. This is also true for Petra’s imposing Khazneh (the Treasury) monument. There’s a little music (Bedouin shepherd’s flute), and a little storytelling by one of the local guides, however this experience is more about atmosphere than content. Just think of it as organic sound and light.
