Day 4 – Petra Visit – Petra By Night (B)
There is no visit to Jordan will be complete without having seen the capital of the ancient Nabatean kingdom, Petra. The long-lost city of Petra, carved entirely by man into the rose-red sandstone rocks, puts your imagination to the test. It’s a mystic and glorious place, an eternal tribute to a lost civilization. Petra was the central meeting point of the Nabatean spice routes which originated from the Persian Gulf, Western Arabia, and the Red Sea. About two thousand years ago Petra became the capital of the Nabatean Empire. The city was so renowned that one of its kings, Aretas IV, is even mentioned in the Bible. The natural richness of the mountainous area combines in a superb way with the refined culture and massive architecture of the Nabateans, who carved their theatre, temples, façades, tombs, monasteries, houses roads entirely the rose-red sandstone rocks.
No wonder UNESCO placed Petra on its World Heritage List one enters Petra by passing the Siq, a deep and narrow gorge, at the end of which all of a sudden dramatically appears the most famous monument in Petra: Al-Khazneh or The Treasury. Maybe you will recognize it as the stage of the final sequence of the movie ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade’. But the Treasury is just the start. Walking and climbing in Petra hundreds of buildings carved in stone and eroded through the centuries into fabulous multi-colored walls will be revealed to you. A romantic way to see Petra, Petra by Night is not your typical sound-and-light show. No colored laser beams, no booming amplified music, or recorded actor narratives—just a remarkable chance to experience Petra as the ancient spice caravan travelers must have seen it. The mile-long entry gorge (Siq) of Petra, mysterious enough in the daytime, becomes downright fairy-tale magical at night, lit only by flickering luminarias. Ditto for Petra’s imposing Khazneh (the Treasury) monument.
There’s a little music (Bedouin shepherd’s flute), a little storytelling by one of the local guides, but this experience is more about atmosphere than content. Just think of it as “organic sound and light.” It is a silent trip to enjoy letting feel The trip is only 2 hours, from 20:30 – 22:30, and it’s organized only each Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday weekly. Finally, we head into Petra hotel for dinner and overnight.
