2.7/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web
A 400-year-old mesquite, Tree Of Life remains the only vegetation in a remote desert landscape. Reaching a height of 9.75 m (32 ft), the tree is specially adapted to retain water from the harsh arid conditions, yet is the only of its kind in the area, leading many to turn to myth and religion as to its survival.

  • Good location & very interesting tree. October would be good timing to visit this attraction, whether is getting cooler. 
  • 很早就听说巴林的沙漠里有一个长生不老的树,原因不详。开车带着家人终于找到了它! 的确是生长在沙漠里。很倔强地顽强地矗立在沙漠中。估计是地下水使得它长久不衰。 也听说过一些传说。。。有历史的,宗教的传说。。。 可惜树身上被喷了一些颜色和书写文字。希望政府部门能关心这些自然古迹。

  • The sheer beauty of this tree is due to the contrast created by the location. They have built a wall around the tree, a mini museum, a mini amphitheatre, and wall intervals denoting distance of similar trees in other countries. I'd advice all to go see the tree right before sunset and view it's silhouette. As the sun sets, the spotlights come on and it's a spectacular sight to behold. Please calculate your timing appropriately as it's a long way from the city. Also carry drinking water as there are no stores or outlets in this route.
  • This around an hour drive from Manama. A place where your kids play and climb a huge tree. A place if you want to have a piece of mind.
  • In the middle of a vast desert, this great tree stood for centuries... beautiful place to visit but not on a very hot and sand stormy days
  • Must visit for Bahrain. Cons: kids climbing, people drawing on it, not kept up with as much as it deserves.
  • Definitely a must see atleast once if you are ever in Bahrain
