Sukkar House

The house was built by Abdel Rahman al Aqrouq for Yusef Sukkar, a member of a prominent Christian family who moved from Nablus to As-Salt. They were well-known for the development of a market facing the Saha (not in existence anymore).

The Sukkar House (1879-1884) was embellished with glass and floor tiles imported from Jerusalem, and decorated with painted ceilings and elaborate wood balustrades.
