The state takes its name from the largest island Bahrain. It is linked by causeways to Muharraq [
internationale luchthaven ] en Sitra [ industriegebied en tankopslag ].
There are numerous other tiny islands, but they are mainly uninhabited and are best known for the variety of migrating birds
which pass through in spring and autumn.

Al Mintaqah al Gharbiyah
Al Mintaqah al Wusta
Al Mintaqah ash Shamaliyah
Ar Rifa' wa al Mintaqah al Janubiyah
The house was built by Shaikh Hamad bin Abdulla Al Khalifa in 1907, and was the birthplace of the present
Amir in July 1933. Restored in 1986 and are now open to the public.
Al Jazaer Beach - Strand
Al-Khamis Mosque - moskee
one of the oldest relics of Islam in the region, and the foundations are believed to have been laid as early as
692AD. An inscription found on the site, however, suggests a foundation date sometimes during the 11th
Century. It has since been rebuilt twice in both 14th & 15th centuries, when the minarets were constructed.
This 16th century fort of Arabic construction is probably one of the first landmarks you will see upon arrival to Bahrain due to its proximity to the airport.
Bahrain Fort - Fort van Bahrein
The first dwellings on the site are believed to have been constructed around 2800 BC, and have
subsequently been overlaid by numerous fortified settlements. The last was built in the early 16th century to
defend Portugal's recent acquisition of the islands-for this reason, it is also known locally as the Portugueese Fort.
Beit Al Qur'an - House of the Qur'an
The House of the Qur'an was built to accommodate a comprehensive and valuable collection of the Holy Qur'an and manuscripts, a concept which is unique in the Arabian Gulf.
Excavations, which were begun in the 1950s and 1960s, have revealed three stone-built temples dating from
the second and third millennia BC. It is believed that they were built as a place of worship for the God of Spring Waters, Enki, and a sacred well within the complex strengthens this theory.
Museum of Pearl Diving - Museum over parelduiken
The 'Museum of Pearl Diving' building is regarded as one of the most important and historic buildings in Bahrain
. Its importance derives from being the first official center for the Bahrain Courts.
Salman bin Ahmed Al fateh Fort
Standing on a low escarpment, overlooking the valley between the east and west Riffa the fort held an ideal strategic position during the 18th century
Shaikh Isa's House
Shaikh Isa's house, in the old town of Muharraq, was once the home of the Amir`s great-grandfather, Shaikh
Isa Bin Ali Al khalifa . It provides a fine example of local architecture, complete with wind tower, wall carving
and lattice work, and its representative of traditional 19th century life. One of the early forms of " air
conditions" was the wind tower, a traditional landmark of local architecture. This would act as a funnel,
catching the breeze and drawing it down it down into the cavities below, as well as allowing the release of hot air like a chimney.
Soukhs in Bahrein
The Soukh, The Gold Soukh en The Cloth Soukh
One of the most impressive examples of a 19th century built by the pearl-merchant Ahmed Bin Qassem Siyadi
and has many fine features to look out for, including ornate ceilings, stained-glass windows, carved screens and a large safe set into the wall of a small, upper reception room.

Indo Pacific species including clown fish, trigger fish, surgeon fish,turtles, rays, lion fish,grouper, snapper,
crayfish and even whalesharks; while tuna, mackerel, trevally and barracuda cruise above. In addition to reef
diving there are a number of wrecks around the island, including ships, planes, tugs and barges that have
something special to offer the inveterate diver. Dugongs (sea cows) can also be seen feeding on the sea grass in the southern waters of Bahrain during the cooler winter months.

Geschiedenis van Bahrein
Known in ancient times as Dilmun, Bahrain was an important center of trade by the 3rd millennium B.C. The
islands were ruled by the Persians in the 4th century A.D., and then by Arabs until 1541, when the
Portuguese invaded them. Persia again claimed Bahrain in 1602. In 1783 Ahmad ibn al-Khalifah took over, and
the al-Khalifahs remain the ruling family today. Bahrain became a British protectorate in 1820. It did not gain full independence untill Aug. 14, 1971.
Bahrain's History - Wikipedia
Bahrain was once part of the ancient civilization of Dilmun and served as an important link in trade routes
between Sumeria and the Indus Valley as long as 5,000 years ago.
In the first century AD, Bahrain was referred to by the Greeks as "Tylos", the centre of pearls trading...
Oil Museum - Olie Museum
Houses some fascinating exhibits, including drilling equipment, documents, old photographs and a working model of an oil rig.
Oil Well No.1 - Oliebron nummer 1
As its name suggests, this is the first oil well in the Gulf. "Spurted" on 16th October 1931, the well finally
began to blow heads of oil on the morning of 2nd June 1932, too much celebration on the part of those
involved in the project. It is situated below jebel Dukhan, the Mountain of Smoke, which, at a height of 134
meters (450 feet), is the highest point of the island. Its name comes from the misty haze, which frequently surrounds it on a hot and humid day.
Sinds het toenemende nationalisme in de zestiger jaren in de diverse Arabische staten, is rond de juiste
naamgeving van de Perzische Golf een namenstrijd tussen Iran en de Arabische staten ontstaan. Hoewel de
laatste de naam 'Arabisch-Perzische Golf' voorstaan, houdt Iran vast aan de al lang bestaande naamgeving. De UNO gebruikt de naam Perziische Golf en beveelt aan om die vooralsnog te gebruiken.
