The village itself is well-known because of its skillful potteries. Experienced craftsmen of the settlement share their experience from generation to generation. They make true works of art made of clay and tourists enjoy buying them as souvenirs. Do not forget about Jabal al-Dukhan Mountain - one of the most striking natural attractions of this place and the highest point of the island. Near the mountain, the height of which estimates 134 meters, is located another longtime symbol of Bahrain - "Tree of Life". Imagine a desert without an end and a lonely acacia tree – the landscape truly looks great and amazes either newcomers or people who return there. The age of the tree is more than four hundred years. According to a legend, the acacia is the only surviving tree of a huge Garden of Eden, which once occupied the greater part of the island.
A large number of important excursion places of interest is located in the capital of Bahrain - Manama.
