Description

Discover the interesting heritage of Bahrain on this incredible private sightseeing tour.

Bahrain Fort: Thought to be once the centre of power for the ancient Dilmun civilization, Qal'at Al Bahrain (Bahrain Fort) has UNESCO World Heritage status. The Bahrain Fort occupies a strategic military position where the navigation movement could be watched. Excavations have revealed ancient soldier's barracks, horse stables, an ammunition depot, a secret passageway, ceramic utensils and Islamic and Chinese currency coins.

Bahrain Fort Museum: This museum was opened to the public in 2008, the site museum display area consists of 5 exhibition halls organized around a massive Tell Wall. With 500 artifacts showcased, the long settlement history of the site is evoked to the unique backdrop of the wall, which recreates the different archaeological layers uncovered at the site.

Royal Camel Farm: This farm was owned by His Highness Late Shaikh Mohamed Bin Salman Al Khalifa, the uncle of the King of Bahrain. There are more than 500 camels in this farm. Have your camera ready to pose with the camels, as they are very friendly.

Al Jasrah Handicraft Center: Its located in the village of Al Jasra, you experience the practice of local crafts where the centre is divided into small rooms, each containing craftsmen engaged in the traditional arts of pottery, cloth and basket weaving. Souvenirs are also available for purchase.

Al Jasrah House: Al Jasra House was constructed by Shaikh Hamad bin Abdulla Al Khalifa in 1907. It was later used as a summer residence for Shaikh Salman Bin Hamad Al Khalifa, ruler of Bahrain from 1942 to 1961. The current ruler's father The Late Shaikh Isa Bin Salman Al Khalifa was born in this house in 1933. The house was designed according to the traditional Bahraini architecture to suit the local environment. Local materials such as coral, gypsum and palm-tree trunks were used for its construction and truly represent the traditional Bahraini house.

Burial Mounds: These archaeological mounds are of great historical importance going back to the Dilmun civilization in the third millennium BC. Other archaeological mounds, which go back to the Hellenistic period of Alexander the Great (2500 BC) are also found in various areas in Bahrain. The most imposing mounds are those believed to be the Dilmunite Royal Tombs. These tombs are seen in A'ali close to modern dwellings.
