Where the money goes 

JD 21 of the total cost of the ticket is paid to the Ministry of Finance; the balance goes to the government authority that manages the Region of Petra, the Petra Development Tourism Regional Authority (PDTRA). 25% of moneys sent to the Ministry of Finance accrued from entrance fees, are allocated in the annual budget to the PDTRA and 10% to the Petra Archaeological Park (PAP) for conservation activities. 


Opening times

The site is open from 6am to 6pm during the summer and from 6am to 4 pm in winter.  The Park police try to move tourists out of the site before dark because the terrain is difficult to manage in the dark.
