Bahrain Architecture

I found the Bahrain architecture to be impressive! I’ll introduce my top 5 favorite buildings in Bahrain.

Bahrain Bay Four Seasons – best new Bahrain architecture

Bahrain loves multi-tower buildings! Check out the new Bahrain Bay Four Seasons building. This 68 floor building is interesting too. They have their own a private 12-acre man-made island!

The designer is SOM. Beautiful! It’s new. See below.

United Tower aka The Twisting Tower / Wyndham

The United Tower looks so interesting. It’s also known as the Twisting Tower, and Wyndham Grand Manama. The 50-story United Tower looks likeĀ a huge drill.

Apparently this twist style of design is not only on the Bahrain architecture. It’s also all around the world. Check out this below info graphic:

Grand Mosque aka Al Fateh Mosque

  • The Al Fateh Mosque (Grand Mosque) is the largest place of worship and among the largest mosques in the world!
  • The dome is the largest fibreglass dome in the world
  • The mosque covers 6,500 square meters. It can accommodate more than 7000 worshippers at a time.
  • The Grand Mosque is named after Ahmed Al Fateh, the conqueror of Bahrain.
  • The Grand Mosque of Fateh is also known as Al Fateh Islamic Centre and Al Fateh Mosque.
  • Where to find the Grand Mosque? The mosque is located next to the King Faisal Highway. That’s in Juffair, Manama.
