The Tree of Life – one of the worlds loneliest trees
Shajarat-al-Hayat or the Tree of Life is growing in Southern Governorate of Bahrain. Standing on the hill Mountain of Smoke (Jebel Dukhan) it is more than 400 years old, and it’s height is about 10 meters. Meanwhile, the locals and thousands of tourists come to the sandy hill to see the only ancient tree growing in this area. However, the bad side of some visits is that vandals damaged it by graffiti carvings. According to belief, The Tree of Life is the site for cults practicing ancient rites. In addition, there is a mentioning of the tree in the 1991 American romantic comedy film ‘L.A. Story’, written and starring by Steve Martin, and directed by Mick Jackson. Considered one of the world’s loneliest trees, it stands in the dessert attracting visitors and pilgrims.
