Situated at the entrance of the Manama Suq, Bab al Bahrain was built in 1949 and housed the government offices at the time. Once right on the sea front, Bab al Bahrain was extensively restored in the 1980s, significantly transforming the building.

Currently, it is undergoing another transformation which will seek to bring it back to its former state, with some modifications. The Central Post Office building, positioned across the roundabout from the Bab al Bahrain building, is envisaged to be relocated within the square’s perimeter.

Bab al Bahrain is a gateway to the Manama Suq which offers Bahrain’s most traditional shopping experience. Within its atmospheric alleyways, the Kingdom’s exotic items from natural-oil perfumes and incense, rich fabrics and handicrafts, abayas and jalabiyas to intricate carpets can be found.
