The Tree of Life

Tree of life is nothing new to the people of Bahrain. This tree is considered as a natural wonder. Its a 400-year old mesquite tree which stands alone in the desert about 1.2 miles (two kilometers) from the Jebel Dukhan. The source of water for this tree still remains a mystery, because it stands in a place completely free of water whatsoever .

For those of who doesn't know where Bahrain is.. Here is some information about the Kingdom of Bahrain . Bahrain is an island country in the Persian Gulf and is the smallest Arab state. Its so small that its hard to spot on maps. Bahrain has been inhabited since ancient times and has even been proposed as the site of the Biblical Garden of Eden (Garden of Eden is described in the Book of Genesis {Bible} as being the place where the first man, Adam, and the first woman, Eve, lived after they were created by God).
