Moukhtara, Chouf district

The Palace of Moukhtara is located in the main square of the village, where the visitor can see the recently built "Emir Shakib Arslan" mosque at the entrance. The imposing palace embodies the long history of the Joumblatt family. As prominent sheikhs, landowners, politicians and intellectuals, the Joumblatts have throughout history played an important role in determining the political structure and governance of Lebanon. Subsequently, Moukhtara Palace was and remains central to historical and political events in the country, hosting dignitaries, heads of states, spiritual leaders as well as Arab and foreign politicians, and welcoming citizens from all walks of life.
