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.

  • This is an amazingly old Mesquite tree growing virtually by itself in the desert. On the day I visited there was a ranger and one other person. The tree and its surroundings are a beautiful introducti...  more »

  • 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.
  • "Tree of life" A wonderful creation of nature by the almighty. Tree of life is a 450 year old tree standing alone in the middle of a desert near the Arabian gulf.Its located on Kingdom of bahrain. A tree spread its green leafs,& shade for you.Once you visited their you can't express the joy you have when you sitting under the shade. From Manama you can easily reach their. just set the navigators & you will be there.
  • It's a great place for camping lovers. The past few years the place was totally quiet but that have now changed. People have started putting up small restaurants and the camping site have increased tremendously. It's worth checking out.
  • A place which attracts tourists. It is one of a kind but don't except much when you plan a visit because you might be disappointed. Here you can find a tree which is very old and surrounded by barren lands(no other big trees neighbouring it) . Few tea shops have also been opened near the place recently.
  • Not much there beside the tree itself. It is, however, intriguing to find a fully grown tree in this location. I have read multiple times that it was heavily littered so we were very pleased to find the location spotless. The information panels (in the periphery "shelter") were interesting and a nice addition.
