Tree of Life , Bahrain

The Tree of Life in Bahrain is one of the mysteries of world which is bound to be in your sightseeing list while in this Middle Eastern country.

The Tree of Life in Bahrain is four century old mesquite tree which survives in the midst of desert. Means it's about 400 years old !!

The mystery of the survival of the tree has made it a legend. The source of water for this tree remains a mystery because it stands in a place completely free of water.

The name “tree of life” is absolutely appropriate for the tree as it truly represents the magic of life. A legend is also attached to the site where the tree is located. The local inhabitants believe with heart and soul that this was the actual location of the Garden of Eden.

The Tree of Life of Bahrain is located 1.2 miles or 2 kilometers away from Jebel Dukhan. The tree stands all alone in the heart of desert and from far away it looks like a green spot in the white desert. While going to this place extra caution should be taken to avoid your car from getting stuck in the sand. There are very less habitation near this place as this is in the midst of the desert.
