Petra by night:

To visit Petra during daylight is an awe-inspiring experience, to experience it at night by the light of 1,800 candles is truly an out-of-this-world experience! Walk through the Siq to the Khazneh following a candle-lit path and enjoy the haunting music of the Bedouin at the Treasury. Tours start at 8.30pm and finish at 10.00pm. Tickets can be purchased from the Petra Site Office at the entrance to the site. Allow yourself plenty of time to walk through the Siq, you don't want to miss the show.

 

 
  One of the Noor Al Hussein Foundation's most prominent income generation initiatives for empowering women that continued to progress/evolve for 14 years had been the National Handicraft Development Project. The Project was successful in preserving traditional handicrafts and creating income for women in remote and rural areas. Through the Jordan Design and Trade Center (JDTC), the program had established nine income-generating handicraft centers, provided product development, technical expertise, and linkages to local and international markets, thus creating over 2000 job opportunities for women. In summer 2004, JDTC’s showroom and its initiated handcraft projects were turned over to women-led cooperatives, while the Foundation’s Cooperatives Unit maintains indirect support to these enterprises.

Jordan Design and Trade Center

The Jordan Design and Trade Center (JDTC) was founded in 1990 with the aim of advancing the goals of the National Handicraft Development Project. Since its inception, JDTC has been instrumental in reviving the handicraft industry by promoting women’s handicraft production as a source of national income and establishing itself as a model for other local NGOs. The Center until 2004 operated various retail outlets in major tourist sites in Amman, Petra, Aqaba, Jerash, and Madaba. It supported production centers and cooperatives initiated by NHF and other handicraft workshops in Jordan and the region. The Center also provided technical assistance to improve quality and management skills. As a vital link between Jordan’s local handicraft industry and today’s sophisticated world markets, JDTC provided marketing support and product development and introduced internationally acclaimed contemporary designs. Fada Mijwel (Um Ali won the “Magnificent Carpet Award” at the Atlanta International and Rug Market in the United States.
