Archaeologies of Green Bahrain Pavilion

Hidden Gems in Bahrain

Shadowed by Sheikh Isa bin Ali Al Khalifa House in Muharraq, guarded by the picturesque twin towers of the adjacent mosque, Archaeologies of Green Bahrain Pavilion is a modern, high-walled sanctuary of botanical gardens in ornate pristine surroundings.

Inside this contemporary cultural botanical ‘pit-stop’ is a quaint picturesque café restaurant with abundant seating in a small 10-garden paradise of fruit-bearing trees and archaeological artefacts portraying a long tradition of agriculture – the source of many myths about Bahrain being the Garden of Eden and land of a million palms.

Visitors are served by a traditional waiter who recites food and beverages offered by heart – priced very realistically. From karak tea to fresh avocado sandwiches, traditional sweets to chicken machboos, and conventional Western-style foods – something for everybody. If it’s not mentioned – ask. The host’s entrepreneurial flair is surprising.

Walk around – ask nicely, you may be allowed into the VIP area, where momentarily you will be ‘centre stage’ in the air-conditioned tastefully decorated, quaint modern lounge.

A gentle place of quiet thoughts, like a Japanese garden – a place of beauty provided by the host Her Excellency Shaikha Mai bint Mohammed Al Khalifa.

A must-do Muharraq ‘cultural houses tour’ refreshment stop.

Open daily from 9am to 6pm.
