Sarakna

On the road from al-Qusiya to the Monastery of al-Muharraq lies the village of Sarakna. Some five thousand Christians make up about 90 percent of the population. Although the village is not on the Church-issued official itinerary of the Holy Family, locals believe in the presence of the Holy Family, and argue that they must have passed Sarakna on their way from al-Qusiya to the Monastery of al-Muharraq.
