The village, which was classified as a hamlet in the Palestine Index Gazetteer, stood on the north bank of Wadi al-Bira, near where the wadi issued from the hills and descended toward the Jordan Valley, some 3 km southeast. An abandoned mill, once powered by water from the wadi, lay in ruins on the south bank of the wadi, opposite the village. The cemetery for Khirbat al-Taqa lay upslope from the site, to the north. The village was hidden by hills on the north and south sides. It was only 500 m from a highway that led north to Jisr al-Majami', a major ford and bridge across the Jordan River. The same highway led to Baysan in the south.
