Bahrain Temples

Barbar Temple

The Barbar complex consists of three successive temples built over 5 stages and dating back to the 2nd and 3rd millennium BC. They were built on platforms and organized around a courtyard.

A sunken chamber enclosing a fresh water spring constitutes the focus of a cult believed to be associated with the Mesopotamia God of wisdom and sweet water Enki.

Diraz Temple

Diraz is home to an impressive archaeological discovery dating back to the 3rd millennium BC. The Diraz Temple is unique in that it was built using enormous limestone columns and alters.

For history and archaeology buffs it is a must see.
