Ramla Things to Do

    Franciscan Church, Ramla, IL

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    According to the tourism webpage of Ramla at the site of the Franciscan Church already in the 15th century monks of the Franciscan order built a hostel for pilgrim. Shortly later the site was considered as the former home to Josef of Arimathea who according to the New Testament was the one asking Pontius Pilatus to take down Jesus from the cross. With this assumption the place was declared sacred and a monastery was founded here.

    The Mosque of Huziffa El Yemini, Ramla, IL

    Walking through the narrow streets of Ramla I saw the small minaret, which together with the interesting architecture (windows) of the house to the right, made a nice photo. I also found this minaret on the tourism page of Ramla, but with a small roof around and the iron construction still in white. But it is the same. It is written there that it is the minaret of the Mosque of Huziffa El Yemini and still the original from the 14th century. Also that when Napoleon Bonaparte stayed in Ramla for a night in the vicinity of the mosque the muezzin of the mosque 'disturbed' him so much, that he shot him dead. After Napoleon left Israel the Muslims in Ramla burnt down the two churches in town.

    To plan your trip and to navigate you can download a map showing the tourist spots of Ramla. You will find it on the tourism section of the webpage of Ramla municipal. It helped me a lot during planning and visiting Ramla.

Ramla Restaurants

    Simple, homely, tasty, professional plates.
    Non- pretentious and yet for me it's most similar, compared to Israeli restaurants, to original Indian cuisine.

    The portions are generous.
    .

    Favorite Dish: Typical tandoori fare.

    Pani Puri, consisting of three different varieties of small Indian breads stuffed with lentils, vegetables and yoghurt.
