Bahrain: The Garden of Eden?
According to the Epic of Gilgamesh (a Babylonian creation myth) and some interpretations of the Old Testament, the mythical Garden of Eden - of Tree of Life fame - might have actually been in southern Bahrain. Local tour operators cite a sprawling and gnarled mesquite tree without any apparent water source that has continued to bloom since anyone can remember as proof of this legend.
