    The Cultures & Religions of Ramla

    There is something about the city of Ramla that enchants visitors: its warm hospitality, its mix of tourist attractions, its vivacious markets, or perhaps its diverse population.

     Today it is home to some 76,000 residents, including Jewish immigrants from over 55 countries, Moslems, Christians, and Karaites.


Welcome to Ramla!

The town of Ramla was founded upon the initiative of the Moslem ruler Suleiman Abed el Malik at the beginning of the 8th century AD. It was built on sand and was therefore named Ramla, with “ramal” meaning “sand” in Arabic.

Ramla is situated on the ancient road leading from Jaffa to Jerusalem and at times, served as the district capital. Napoleon Bonaparte, Richard the Lionheart and many other nobles passed through the town, built here and went on their way.

Which other town can offer you to float in a boat on water in a pool located below ground between its buildings, to climb a 700-year-old tower whose top reveals the sight of the high-rises in Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan, to stroll across one of Israel’s largest outdoor markets, to wander around between churches, mosques and synagogues ?

Come and enjoy Ramla’s unique sites, meet its artists in the Old City and of course, get a taste of the many foods its famous restaurants have to offer. All this can be found and enjoyed at a distance of only a 20 minute drive from Tel Aviv…

You are most warmly invited!
