Welcome to Al Gharrafa

Al Gharrafa (Arabic: الغرافة‎, romanized: Al Gharrāfah) is a district of Al Rayyan City in Qatar, located in the municipality of Al Rayyan. In Arabic, "gharafa" translates as "to scoop up". It was so named because it is a low-lying floodplain from whence locals would scoop up water from in the past.

Around The Block

Al Gharrafa:
In close proximity to metropolitan Doha and Education City, the Doha Expressway and Al Shamal Highway run along the district. Many malls operate out of the area, most notably Landmark Mall.[4] To the east it neighbors the largely residential areas of Duhail and Madinat Khalifa North, therefore Al Gharrafa is largely a retail hub for nearby residential areas. Doha's downtown is about 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) to the southeast.
