 Abdel Hamid Mahmoud Daghlas' Palace  

 


Also known as Abdel Hamid Mahmoud Daghlas' Palace. He was former Sheikh of Nisf Jubeil and 4 other villages.

An ancient Palestinian palace that served as the Mukhtar’s residence and the village council for the area northwest of Nablus has been renovated and rehabilitated. The building is located in a small village known as Nisf Jubeil in the occupied Palestinian territories. It has been restored to become a symbol of tolerance, growth, and rural modernization.

The Palace, traces back to the late 1800- early 1900 and represents the visible attraction of the village, which was the source of prosperity for Nisf Jubeil: creating jobs, providing shelter, hosting guests, and ensuring stability. Abdel Hamid, although the ruler of more than 3 villages, have chosen his palace to be in Nisf Jubeil for its strategic location, water source, and more importantly its mixed population. Nisf Jubeil was the only village that had a huge diversity of religious affiliations, and a mix of residents from various families.

Nisf Jubeil village has continued to be the symbol of tolerance, until the occupation of historical Palestine partly in 1948, and entirely in 1967, which included the area of Nablus and Nisf Jubeil. After which the village was ruled by the Israeli occupation forces, ending the village’s prosperity.

'At a time when Palestinian heritage and identity are at its highest risk, it is extremely crucial to continue to preserve it in the land of Palestine'.
