Or Little Petra as it is commonly Known. It is a ten-minute drive north of Petra and entered through a narrow opening, similar to Siq but of a much smaller scale. Entry is free. It is thought to have been an important suburb of Petra and where many religious activities were held, including the Feast of Drink, when the king of the Nabataeans hosted celebrations and provided drinks for his guests.
There is also a monument with the remains of a fresco painted by the Nabataeans that represented grape vines, which confirmed the view that Beida was the area of wine production. In the Siq Al Barid the Nabataean irrigation system, which distributed water through long channels, reservoirs carved into the rock, and dams, is evidence of the greatness of this system.
