Arafat Mausoleum

Local nameMausolée d'Arafat

See muqata'ah for the Ottoman instrument for financing state expenses.

This article deals mainly with the Mukataa of Ramallah.

Mukataʿa is an Arabic word for headquarters or administrative center.

Mukataas were mostly built during the British Mandate as Tegart forts and were used both as British government centers and as dwellings for the British administrative staff. Some Mukataas also included police stations and prisons. After the British left, the buildings often functioned similarly under the Jordanians, and then the Israelis.
