Bahrain is home to culture that is more than five millennia old. It may have been associated with the Dilmun civilization that first sourced copper, according to the Mesopotamian civilization, which named it as a trading partner. Today, there are various archaeological sites around the country that bear traces of this impressive culture. One iconic feature popular with tourists is the Diraz Temple, a site located in the village of Barbar, 5km west of the country’s capital Manama. The village hosts three ancient temples from the Dilmun era, and the most recent one was discovered by a Danish archaeological team in 1954. Two other temples were discovered on the same site, with the oldest hearkening back to 3000 BC. A fascinating glimpse into a culture beyond time, the Diraz Temple is a worthy site of appreciation for the modern tourist-explorer in Bahrain.
