BAHRAIN Picture Gallery

Hi guys. I want to make this the Bahrain Pictures thread and build on it. To get it started, here are some pics of downtown and the new seef area taken from a construction site near the sea.

Skyline seen from seef area (one part of the skyline)


Better view of the above


National Bank of Bahrain tower and the Zamil tower u/c


Citibank mideast headquarters, ahil bank headquarters and Bahrain National Holding Company headquarters. Almoayyed tower is next door.


Some new buildings u/c (hehe looks like a car ad)


Sail tower and the world's largest blue elephant restaurant (thai), part of the Ritz Carlton Hotel

well these low-rises, most of them sprung up during the days of the 80's boom. Bahrain has hundreds of them. Well, slowly, bahrain is changing into a high-rise country. I read that there are proposed towers called Pearl Towers costing $150 million so we'll c. I'll try and find towers and post them, but yea it's not that easy. But, Bahrain has a really nice skyline, aka mini manhattan for its low-rises.

you're right, everything is hard to find as only in very first stages of design.
i read there are dozens of towers planned for both qatar and bahrain, but it takes time. it even took dubai a year till the first projects were released

we just have to wait a little bit

Al fateh mosque (Grand mosque)


Heritage village near the bahrain museum

Seef district (looks very similar to my pic in the almoayyed tower thread)






The guy behind the great pics, thanks :)
