    A Journey in various ways
    Great place for meditation and photos. It’s a beautiful tree in the desert surrounded by various oil places and camp grounds. Warning!!!! GPS might take you away from the main road to cut through a dirt road with areas of soft sand where numerous visitors , like myself, get stuck. Fortunately there are security personnel and grounds keepers to help for a small fee. Uploaded is a photo of the area to stay away from marked with a red X.

    Tree of Life is still alive
    Tree of Life is alive again, my last trip there was in 2008 and without the intervention, it would probably be dead by now. Now there is 24/7 guard on duty to stop people burning the tree and it is worth visiting again. There is even a small museum for the tree done:) If you like to see a mystery tree growing in the middle of nowhere, that is the place to go. 1 big tree on top of the small hill with nothing else around it!

    Mesmerising Tree I’d Life, nothing like this anywhere in the world…..
    In the middle of the desert, with no source of water, the Tree of Life a 441 years old tree which is a rare site and should be declared as one of the ondear of the modern world. The positive elements of his place attracts you deep i to the woods and the myth is donate some water and make a wish and if it comes true, come back again to thank the Tree of Life…. Must to do list when in Manama……

    Tree if Life on Easter Sunday
    A group of us decided to visit this sacred site on Easter Sunday. The area was very well kept and they had lots of information about the history of the tree, in an under cover area out of the hot sun. Everyone was very respectful and quiet in the area and the day we visited there were only 10 other people there.

On my first visit in December 2019,I went alone on a private tour. There was no one else there and I felt at one with this lone tree in the middle of the desert. This trip I was with a group and unfortunately there were so many other tours and crowds of people, it felt like we were swarming (desecrating) this ancient marvel. How it survives for hundreds of years without any water source is a msytery. There is actually a learning center with historical posters and information and facts about the tree and surrounding area.

“It’s just a tree.” Don’t let people tell you that. They don’t understand and appreciate the significance of this beautiful tree and why it is important given the surrounding area. I have always been fascinated by lone trees so this was a special visit, despite the brutal noon heat. The tree provided us with welcome shade and reminded us of how much of a miracle it is, having stood there for over 400 years! Visiting with a guide would be great for more in depth information but there are informational plaques there for you to read, supplemented by what’s found online. There were a few other travellers there when we went and they were all in awe as well. There is a ranger posted out here to watch over the tree. Bumpy, sandy dirt road to the Tree but we were totally fine in our tiny sedan.

it is sheer magic that a tree had grown and survived for hundreds of years without any trace of water nearby whether to the four sides or even below.
In the middle of the desert, the tree has stood for, some say, over 500 years and the sight fills one with awe as a true testimony to the glory of nature and a higher power out there somewhere.
It is about a 45-minute drive from the fort and though some may arf gue ae to what there is to see in a tree, it is well worth the time spent visiting it. Standing under the shade of the tree looking out at the desert all around a feeling of pure bliss will envelop you and fill you with tranquillity.
Nothing is available near it so carry food, water, a cap etc with you.

A nice trip from Manama. The day we went it was raining..., at times hard. Nice to walk the surrounding circle, where one can learn about other similar trees of life around the world. Recommended to visit and take pics.

While it may just be a tree, it's a tree in the middle of the dessert with little else around. It's an attractive tree under which you can contemplate how it even manages to survive in such a barren landscape.

If you have your own transport in Bahrain, its worth a trip to visit and see the dessert and oil drills at the same time. There aren't any facilities to speak of at the site with the exception of toilets.

Lovely place to visit in Bahrain, very quiet during the day and when standing under the tree so peaceful. It’s easy to access by car or taxi, a little arrive out of the city. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but we enjoyed the journey out to see it. It’s a tree in the desert so not much else around, there was toilets available and a lovely local watching over the tree.
