  • Since in Manama there are many places of cultural interests, this is well worth a visit. Well maintained, beautifully restored is a set suitable for photos and for a taste of traditional life in the old Bahrain. Refined and charming architecture is to visit in the morning!

  • Was wondering about the house which was very interesting when someone grabbed me and gave me and my friends a tour around the centre for culture and research and many other be buildings in the area.... Best kept secret in Bahrain
  • The House of Sheikh Isa bin Ali Al Khalifa was his residence and the seat of his government. This beautiful house offers insight into the royal life in the 19th century. It consists of several rooms arranged around four courtyards and characterized by its wind towers. It is considered one of the most impressive example of Gulf Islamic architecture on the island.
