It turned out, in brief, to become a picture that embodies in it the features and personality of that community in general. Through the dimensions of that picture, the traits of family personality and culture are reflected. It turned out at large to include inside its walls various and different styles that crystallize in accordance with this architectural pattern that has started to spread in the whole Palestinian towns and cities.
