Essentials in Bahrain
Museum of Pearl Diving: Pearl Diving has been an important part of Bahrain's history but the museum building is just as interesting as the exhibition itself. It's one of the most important buildings in the city, built in 1937 and used to be home to the Supreme Court.
Barbar Temple: There are three temples in the village of Barbar, with one dating back as far as 3000 BC. They are though to have been constructed to worship gods as there are altars in place and a water spring. The entire place is enchanting and worth visiting.
Tree of Life: If you have a Bahrain car hire, take a trip out to the Tree of Life, 30 km south of Manama. It's a lonely tree in the middle of the desert and even has scientists wondering how on earth it survives. There are no water sources nearby!
