Town Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
"The main mosque and the shrine of al-Nabi Huda still stand. The mosque is deserted and beginning to crack in several places; the shrine is made of stone and surmounted with a dome. A number of houses remain; they have been occupied by Yehud's Jewish residents or put to other uses. One residential house, made of concrete, has a slanted roof and rectangular doors and windows; its porch is covered by corrugated metal sheets. Another house, a two-storey, concrete structure with rectangular doors and windows and a tiled, tent-shaped roof, has been converted into a commercial building."
