Tree Of Life, Manama

2.7
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.

  • If you are going to visit this place, then you just need to understand that this is a Holy tree in the desert. That's all. But this is a stunning oasis in the heat.

  • Getting there was a bit difficult due to the lack of signage. The tree is located in the middle of nowhere but is very impressive especially the preservation based on forethought utilized. Do not skip the the information area set off to the side. I would also recommend walking the entire perimeter of area as it not only provides different views of the tree but the plaques and the information is terrific.
  • Visited the tree of life several times. located in the middle of the desert near a small village. bit of history as there is no visible signs of water and quite a large tree. good to see some protection with fences around the base. dont know what it is like know.
  • It's a worthwhile spot to visit for learners and learn about the unique characteristics of the tree and learn archaeology of the area. Considering the temperature of the Bahrain it is advised to go early early in the morning and take sunblock and water with you, there is no tuck shop or stores nearby. They have exhibition of excavation of the site and chronology alongside the tree area. A must visit place 🌳🌴
  • My favourite site in Bahrain. The place requires some drive from Manama or the airport but if you have/rent a car it's a must see. The place has this blissful, peaceful and magical feeling. It's in the middle of the desert but once you approach the tree you can really enjoy the shade and feel it's cool. The structure built around is a nice educational walk where you can find basic facts about the tree as well as other "trees of life" around the world. On the way to the Tree of Life you can also observe oil and gas wells which can be an attraction to some.
  • Great and clean place, in its perimeter details of other "mystical trees" around the world and their relative direction and coordinates too. No facilities present, ie. Food/beverages/bathroom
