If you thought Petra was magical by day, then you must see it at night to get a very different experience. It’s enchanted. At 8.30pm, you start out on a candle-lit path all through the Siq until you reach the Treasury where the whole open space in the middle is candle-lit.
People file in to sit around and listen to traditional Beduin music and song. It’s such a different experience by night.
At the end, the evening MC tells everyone that something is going to happen on the front of the Treasury and to get the cameras ready for spectacular-ness. So everybody got their cameras ready and he counted 1. 2. 3. and all the flashes went off at the same time and lit up the whole place — for me to take one last special photo!
