It is one of the most remarkable phenomena in the world: "the tree of life" of Bahrain stands proudly in the middle of the desert, miles of water sources and areas of vegetation. How does he survive? The question arises for several years.

For the people of Bahrain, an island country located on the Persian Gulf in the Middle East, it is not just "a tree". 400 years old and measuring almost 10 meters high, "the Tree of Life" stands alone in the desert, about two kilometers from Jebel Dukhan, the highest point of the country. His miraculous survival in the middle of nowhere and in such difficult conditions pushed the population of Bahrain to think that this is the only remnant of the mythical Garden of Eden.And for good reason? Its water source remains a mystery.

Biologists and scientists who came to examine the tree were puzzled. And despite many theories, its existence and its survival in the desert is still an enigma. Thus, some believe that the roots of this tree, called al-Hayat Sharajat, but also extend far into the depths, where water sources unknown would feed it.But so far nobody has been able to prove this hypothesis.
While the people of Bahrain believe they have found the spot where stood the Garden of Eden, the Bedouins - nomadic Arab culture living in desert regions of the Middle East - are confident that this legendary tree was blessed by Enki a god of the Sumerian mythology, associated primarily with water.

The Sharajat al-Hayat is one of the "attractions" the most famous of Bahrain.Tourists scramble to admire this mystery of nature. But in recent years, these visits, unsupervised, sometimes lack of respect. Arrived at the foot of the tree, several reporters were disappointed to discover that some visitors carved their names on the trunk. Worse, paint bombs are used to tag the tree. Another finding: some industries, lowered, suggest that many people have climbed the tree ... Sad sight to a phenomenon of nature as remarkable, which should instead be preserved.
