In the heart of Muharraq, Bahrain’s former capital and “Pearling Path” can be found.
The heritage site is named as “Pearling, Testimony of an Island Economy”. The location relates the unique legacy of Bahrain’s pearling era, through the architecture and the urban heritage of the old city of Muharraq as well as three pearl producing oyster beds in the northern territorial waters of Bahrain.
The Pearling Path can be experienced and visited at any point of its 3,5km stretch that snakes through the old alleyways of Muharraq.
There is no correct way to rediscover the site. Visitors can choose to start their visit at the Pearling Path Visitors and Interpretation Centre, the Al Qaysariyya Suq, the Shaikh Ebrahim Centre and more.
The Pearling Path is a great suggestion for an afternoon walk, a cultural trip or just a quick photoshoot! Click here for the location.
