Failaka Island, Kuwait City
Categories: Islands, Nature & Parks
See the remains of churches from the Byzantine era at Failaka Island. You'll walk on the grounds where Mesopotamians walked 2,000 years BCE and see pottery dating from 7th century. Before the invasion of Iraq people lived on the island, but today what's left of their former homes are riddled with bullet holes.
