The Renovated Artas Spring

Contributed by Artas Folklore Center on 25.02.2006:


The Artas Spring just across from the Omar Mosque, built on the spot where Omar bin Khattab prayed, was renovated by the Artas Folklore Center, just one of several renovation projects. There are chambers and niches inside and an opening in the top, which lead some villagers to believe it may have served as a bath at one time.For more information read: “Of Memory and Magic, Missionaries and Museums: more than meets the “eye” in Artas.” Original Content Creator: Leyla Zuaiter
