Sights Info

Sight Description

Bab Al Bahrain which literally means Gateway of Bahrain in Arabic is a historical building located in the Customs Square in Manama’s former central business district. It marks the main entrance to the Manama Souq. Designed by Sir Charles Belgrave, adviser to the Emir and completed in 1949, Bab Al Bahrain once stood close to the water’s edge. Due to extensive land reclamation in the later years, the sea is located a few kilometres north.
