We visited here after seeing UNESCO's 2300 BC Bahrain Fort. While less than 5 km southwest, Google placed us at a local cemetery ~ 500 meters to the east. So after consulting with locals, we found the site and its lone police guard who chatted...More

Was lovely to see a part of the Bahrain history tucked away among modern homes and civilization. The information center there is small yet interesting. Worth a visit at least once.

The entrance is through a gap in a wire fence. There is a sign that designates the place, but I looked for a road...nope you enter a dust pit. The small "visitor's center" has a few photos and a toilet, but it is air-conditioned. You...More

we had booked an archaeological tour of Bahrain with Farhat Tours (an excellent company) and so we went, inter alia, to the remains of these very old temples which had recently been excavated. And ... we had the site to ourselves. You won't need long...More

Although it's free and there is plenty of parking the visit is very underwhelming. The visitor centre is little more than a room with 4 boards and the ruins themselves are a 2 minute view.

It is located in the Barbar area of Bahrain. Its history goes back to Dilmun civilization, when people used to worship idols on the island. 1. Don't follow the google maps as it takes you from the other side of the temple, where there is...More
