This is the most recently built palace, sharing the same hill as Raghadan. Mawa signifies “tranquility and generosity.” Constructed in the early 1970s, it was briefly the residence of King Hussein. It was later used as an office by his wife, Queen Noor, and today provides offices for various princes and princesses.

In the early 1980s, Queen Noor introduced Arab ornamentation to the windows and doors, and colourful mosaics were applied to various parts of the structure.

One of Mawa's most notable features is a small, open-air, 15x5m mosque, enclosed by a low stone wall. The prayer area's floor and mihrab are also ornamented with Mawa's distinct mosaics.
