Petra by night

There must have been about 200 of us, but there was silence in the darkness.  We walked the long dusty path from modern Petra town to the ruins of the old rose red city of Petra. The path was lined with 1500 candles in paper bags.  It took us about 15 minutes of slow walking to get to the kilometre-long Siq (the narrow rock gorge leading into the old city), which was candlelit all the way.

Then we came out at the famous Treasury. What a sight! Hundreds of candles lit the front of the monument. It was beautiful.

We all sat, still in silence (mostly), and were each offered mint tea.  Then the music started. Haunting tunes from traditional Jordanian instruments echoed around the surrounding rocks.

It was something I won't readily forget, and I highly recommend this if you are in Petra on a day when this is happening. It happens about three times a week.
