The Tree of Life in Bahrain is a 400 year-old mesquite tree which lives alone in the middle of the desert. The mystery of how the tree survives has made it a legend.

The Tree of Life or Sharajat-al-Hayat, as the Arabs call it, is located 1.2 miles or 2 kilometers away from Jebel Dukhan. The tree stands lonely in the heart of the desert, on top of a 25-foot-high sandy hill. The tree has continued growing-despite the extremities of the climate. At present it is 32 feet in height.

The tree’s source of water is mystery. Plant scientists say that its roots go very deep and wide to get water from the reserves of sweet springs kilometers away. The Bedouins believe that Enki, the mythical God of water, had showered it with blessing.
