Discovering Muharraq: The Pearling Path

A Fascinating Walking Tour Through Bahrain’s Cultural Gem:

  • Muharraq stands as a testament to Bahrain’s rich cultural heritage and historical significance. As the former capital of Bahrain and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Muharraq offers a fascinating glimpse into the kingdom’s past.
  • Recently, we had the pleasure of joining a walking tour through this captivating city. This tour was organized by our partner KA Tours, renowned as one of the premier tour providers in Bahrain.

Here are some of the places we visited during our walking tour. 

Pearling Path 

  • The Pearling Path, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers a fascinating glimpse into Bahrain’s pearling history. As we strolled along the path, we passed by beautifully restored houses, ancient mosques, and historic landmarks, each telling its own story of Bahrain’s pearling legacy. 

Mohammed Bin Faris House of Sout Music 

  • Mohammed Bin Faris House of Sout Music is a cultural institution dedicated to preserving and promoting Bahrain’s musical heritage.
  • Housed within a beautifully restored building, the center hosts regular performances, workshops, and events that celebrate Bahrain’s rich musical traditions.  

Al-Khalifiyah Library 

  • Al-Khalifiyah Library is a treasure trove of knowledge and learning. Established in 1935, this historic library houses a vast collection of books, manuscripts, and documents that offer valuable insights into Bahrain’s history, culture, and heritage.  

Sheikh Ebrahim Center 

  • Built on the land of the original majlis of Shaikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al Khalifa, the current building is a modern reconstruction. Since 2002, more than 400 artists, speakers, philosophers, and poets have visited the Shaikh Ebrahim Center to share their art and thoughts in this venue dedicated to an open exchange of ideas and knowledge. To accommodate an ever-larger audience, a new auditorium opened in December 2008, with a seating capacity of around 300. 

Abdullah Al Zayed House for Bahraini Press Heritage 

  • Abdullah Al Zayed House for Bahraini Press Heritage is a cultural institution dedicated to preserving and promoting Bahrain’s journalistic heritage.
  • The newly restored 100-year-old building opened in November 2003. Being the house of the founder of the first weekly newspaper in Bahrain and the Gulf, the house is dedicated to the preservation of Bahrain’s press heritage and at the same time preserves part of the country’s unique architectural traditions.
