Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain
April 10, 2017
One testimony of Bahrain’s rich history is the house of Ahmed bin Jasim Siyadi, a well-known pearl merchant in the 19th century. His home exemplifies a historic style building that Muharraq City is known for. The three-story façade features uniquely curved corners and beautiful stuccowork.
In 2012, the Siyadi House was designated as a UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) World Heritage Site.
Near the Siyadi House is one of Bahrain’s oldest mosques that continues to serve Arab worshippers.
