Have you been to this fort overlooking the sea in Bahrain?

Want to discover more about Bahrain’s interesting pearling history? The Bu Maher Fort Visitor’s Center is the starting point to discovering more about that!

Built in 1840, Bu Maher Fort is steeped in seafaring and pearling history. The fort forms the first stop in the historical pearling path having once served as the main fishing harbor and gateway to and from the sea.

The center contains a three-dimensional display that guides the viewer though the history of the path and the houses which formed it from the early beginnings to the main pearling traders.

The visitor’s center can be accessed via the sea by boats that depart from Bahrain’s National Museum harbor and a pedestrian bridge in Muharraq.
