Due to its historical significance and the existence of the well-known Jubrah Palace, Jubrah is regarded as one of Taif's most prominent neighborhoods in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It was named in honor of Jabra of the Makhzoum tribe, who was the wife of Prince Mohammed bin Hisham, the governor of Makkah at the time and one of the princes of the Umayyad dynasty. 

Due to the elegance of its design, the beauty of its inscriptions, and its illustrious location, Jabra Palace has drawn the attention of poets and writers throughout history. It is also mentioned in numerous ancient Arab poems.
