Fodor's Review

Strolling through the Siq as shadows play on the canyon walls allows you to appreciate another side of the magnificent carved city. During the two-hour event, music is played on traditional instruments such as the rababa. If you arrive in the evening, this is a good introduction to the ancient city. Keep in mind that the walk through the Siq to the Treasury is about 1 km (½ mile)—downhill on the way in, uphill on the way back. There are no carriages at night.
