Arafat's Tomb, Ramallah

(85+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Visit Arafat's Tomb to learn about the hardships of recent history. Believing this is a temporary resting site for their leader, a symbolic rail track was put under the grave since Arafat asked to be buried in Jerusalem. Surrounded by water on three sides, the mausoleum is a modern piece of art in itself constructed from stone and glass with a symbolic surface of 11 m by 11 m (120 sq ft) that marks the date of his death. As Yasser Arafat was a well-respected and admired man, smiling or laughing during the visit is considered inappropriate. Make Arafat's Tomb a part of your Ramallah vacation plans using our Ramallah vacation trip planner.

  • The tomb is interesting but more fascinating is the very well done and attached museum regarding Palestinian history. We were quite impressed by the facility and the materials in the museum.  more »
  • The area around the grave with its white marble buildings acts slightly cold at first glance, especially during our visit (apart from a few bored guards), nothing was going on. Is good if here has a good description of the system in order to understand the importance of the various buildings (E.g. the tomb is modeled after a gift of Saudi Arabia and of the Kaaba in Mecca). The Museum is very interesting, because it occupies the Palestinian position in contrast to the Israeli museums.

  • of course by stealing more money to build his mausoleum. Great looking guards for an eye-candy. Hope this helps.  more »
