Manakhah (Arabic: مناخة‎) is a village in west-central Yemen. It is located in the San‘a’ Governorate, on the road between Sana'a and al-Hodeida, located in the Haraz mountains. It was once home to a Jewish community, until their emigration to Israel in the 19th and 20th century. German geographer, Carl Rathjens, visited the town in the early 1930s.
