This Makam (resting place) was dedicated to a shepherd (Ra’ai) named Hassan. The Jerusalem-Jericho road was one of the primary roads passing Nebi Musa, an ancient holy site. Mediterranean Arabs made pilgrimages to Mecca past this point, and many-domed buildings mark the end of the first day’s march.
