Other Sites Around Petra-“Little Petra” (Demo)

This northern suburb of Petra, Siq el-Berid, has come to be known as
Little Petra because it is like a miniature version of the main city.
Just 8km (5 miles) north of the Wadi Musa town (Petra), seems to have
been a largely residential settlement, as relatively few tombs have been
discovered, and appears to have been where the wealthy merchants of
Petra had their homes.  As you emerge into the “town”, the incredible
facades is overwhelming, with houses, temples and cisterns hand carved
into every exposed rock, with flights of steps in all directions.
