The Tree of Life Southern Governorate, Bahrain

The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life (Shajarat-al-Hayat) is the only green living organism in this vast desert. It must have incredibly long roots to have found some underground water source, it's no wonder people see it as a miracle. It is said to be 400 to 500 years old.

Local inhabitants believe this tree marks the location of the Garden of Eden.
