Stop At: Dilmun Burial Mounds, Shaikh Hamad Street, Riffa Bahrain
Burial Mounds: These archaeological mounds are of great historical importance going back to the Dilmun civilization in the third millennium BC. Other archaeological mounds, which go back to the Hellenistic period of Alexander the Great (330 BC) are also found in various areas in Bahrain. The most imposing mounds are those believed to be the Dilmunite Royal Tombs. These tombs are seen in A'ali close to modern dwellings.
Duration: 15 minutes
Stop At: Khamis Mosque, Sh Salman Highway, Manama Bahrain
Al Khamis Mosque: It is considered to be one of the oldest mosques in the region, as its foundation is believed to have been laid as early as 692 AD. An inscription found on the site, however, suggests a foundation date of sometime during the 11th century. It has since been rebuilt twice in both the 14th and 15th centuries, when the minarets were constructed.

The minute you enter the museum you’ll be taken by awe at the rich history that it displays. The museum is divided into five different sections (The Hall of Rulers, Forts Hall, Documents Hall, Horses Hall, and Old Weapons Hall).
