Acquaint yourself with local history at Dar Zahran Heritage Building, which covers centuries' worth of Arab Christian ancestry. Before Ramallah grew into a thriving city, this stately home was the permanent residence of the village's leader or mukhtar, and has remained in the family for the last 250 years. Enter through a colorful courtyard of plants, where one of the Dar Zahran Jaghab descendants will welcome you in to tour the property. Wander through the art gallery and photo exhibit, documenting the lives, fashion, and landscape of Ramallah from 1850 to 1979. A souvenir shop offers a wide selection of Fair Trade authentic Palestinian goods and foods. To find out how to plan a trip to Ramallah, use our trip itinerary maker.
