Maqam Imam Ali (Ramla)

Another tomb of Imam ‘Ali, or the tomb of another Imam ‘Ali is situated in Ramla. E. Palmer says: "The name applies to the kubbeh or 'shrine' at Biaret Heiderah — the wells of the declivity" (1881, 214). The structure was located on the old road from Ramla to Lod. In aerial photographs of Ramla of the 1940s can be clearly seen the object surrounded by the gardens.
