Landmark
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.

  • Absolutely astounding that this tree has survived. There needs to be more attention to visitors. There was only 1 security gaurd who only came when one of the teens was swinging on the precious branches. The toilet was appalling. The office is far from the tree considering the unbearable heat in summer so I can see why tourists were left unattended. No refreshment possibility here. No store or stall. No water or coffee.
  • Well worth the drive, which in itself helps you understand the impact of oil in the region. Take the approx. 600 m perimeter walk which highlights the direction and location of other great trees. Spend some time in the mini museum which contains lots if interesting info about how they calculated the age, the settlement in the area which pre-dates the tree, and theories on how the tree has survived.
  • Its a only tree in wide spread desert of Bahrain.. Better to visit in Winter. Nothing around this area. Go well prepared for your needs.
  • It's a nice place to visit if you're a tourist. But don't have a high expectation of the place. The idea of a tree surviving for 400 years in a desert without being watered is definitely amazing. But that aside, it's just a tree in the middle of nowhere.
  • It's all about a huge tree surviving all by itself without being watered for 400 years app. Considering it's in a desert is what's fascinating. Sunset time is d best to go n also for photographers.
