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.
