I have visited this place 3 times. it is too far from Manama like 40km. basically site is recommended for camping but in winters only. now this place has access via car (Sedan) as well. you can spend half hour to one hour here but again in winters only.

400 years old, almost 10 m high and covered in lush green leaves, it is a national landmark. I hope it will remain for years to come since given the degree of vandalism/ graffiti ( love messages carved on the branches) and lack of guards + fencing to protect this landmark, it is slowly deteriorating. This will be a shame... More

After we found it, it was very interesting. The tree looks great from all perspectives. Very interesting is the history part and the walkway around the tree where you can see the distance to other trees

This place is very well maintained. It is highly recommend to go after 6:00 PM , as the lights which illuminates this place , magnifies its beauty. It's a great place to go with friends and family. Make sure you carry water and food with you, as there is nothing available in and around.

We went early in the morning to avoid the crowds and traffic in the acres of camping on the dirt road entering the grounds. It's of interest, with people taking photos and watering the tree which has suffered lightening and graffiti damage over the years. Impressed that a wall is around it now and there's ample parking at lease eary... More

Toursim department can turn this magnificent potential into a vibrant plave to go to. Still holds value for a historical site that mankes you marvel at the uniqueness of this tree without water source near or arround it.

It isn't quite as isolated as you are led to believe, and there are trees growing (plantation) not too far away. Don't visit during camping season (winter months) as the area is filled with camp compounds. Far better to list during the summer months when you will feel some of the isolation suggested (not to mention the heat!)

We visited during the day on a week day, it was very quiet but the area was surrounded by tents setup to cater for the masses that go there in the evenings and weekends. a bit surreal!
