    Drive or take a taxi to the south to the tree of Life, where there is usually a large heard of camels somewhere in the vicinity. You can pet them and even sit on one of them if you choose. This one is expecting a baby in a couple of months but was pretty friendly and calm.

    Behind Adari Park is the 'green bit'. I went back in March '01 to check if it still existed, sure enough it's there. I went at 5pm and was lucky enough to see herons nesting in the trees. How to get There: To get there head towards Saudi Arabia, on the main highway. On your right hand side, just past the dairy queen there's an abandoned petrol station. Park there and walk towards the farm area.

  • The Mystical Tree

    by katcoota Updated Nov 13, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This mystical tree is in the middle of the desert, growing there all alone. No one really knows (or probably never bothered) to investigate the water source of this tree.

    The best way to appreciate this tree and the surrounding area is to imagine what it would have been like 500 years ago. You are traveling on your camel in the desert. You could not go over the mountain, so you had to go around it. It's hot, sunny and getting a bit dusty. Then in the distance you see something unfamiliar. Your eyes are watery as they try and cope with the bright sun light and the looking in the distance. Then you see that shadow again. It's a very strange object, so you decide to go closer. You can't believe your eyes. It's a flourishing tree with Shade! A great deal cooler than being under the sun, with a little breeze underneath and some moisture from the tree.

    That is what this tree is. It's a mystery how it is where it is.

    The area even today gives you the opportunity to go away from the growing city of Manama and other towns. This place is a great re-treat especially as the weather gets cooler.

    It would make a great picnic site.

    Oh by the way, they gave this tree a name, The Tree of Life.
