Ramla, it was one of the most important cities for the Jewish community in the 9th and 10th centuries. The name of the Tower of Forty Martyrs, whose original name is the White Mosque, according to the Arab tale, comes from forty Muslims who were buried there after being exterminated for their faith. The square shapes and ogival windows of the minaret represent the Saracen architecture style.
