The Emir Was Here
Made of coral stone and palm tree trunks, Al Jasra House has been standing since 1917 and was the birthplace in 1933 of the former emir (king), Sheikh Isa bin Sulman Al Khalifa. It offers a fascinating glimpse into a not-so-distant past when wind towers (ingenious cooling systems predating air conditioning) dominated the Bahraini skyline.
