The Muharraq Governorate is one of the five governorates of Bahrain. It is now co-extensive with the municipality of Al Muharraq and with Muharraq Island together with outlying islets. It includes the former municipality of Al Hadd at the southern end of that island. The centre of Muharraq contains some of the oldest residential properties in the Kingdom, many of which have been rented out by their Bahraini owners to expatriate workers.
Muharraq is Bahrain's third largest city and served as its capital until 1923 when it was replaced by Manama. The city is located on Muharraq Island and has long been a centre of religiosity. Bahrain International Airport is also located on the island. Adjacent to Muharraq are the man-made Amwaj Islands, known for their large buildings, hotels and beaches. Muharraq is home to Muharraq Club, which is Bahrain's most successful football club.
Muharraq airfield is a military base located adjacent to Bahrain International Airport. It is run by the United States Navy and usually ships supplies in and out of the airport with many of them from other countries as well. The U.S. Navy, the U.S. Marines, the Bahrain Police, and others run the security at the airfield. Security at this place is considered one of the best in the world.
Arad Fort is a 15th century fort in Arad, Bahrain. Arad Fort was built in the typical style of Islamic forts during the 15th century A.D. before the Portuguese invasion of Bahrain in 1622 A.D. This fort is one of the compact defensive forts in Bahrain. In its present location, it overlooks various sea passages of Muharraq's shallow seashores.
Al Muharraq Stadium
Al Muharraq Stadium is a multi-use stadium situated in Arad, Bahrain. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Muharraq Club. The stadium holds 20,000 people. The stadium underwent maintenance works for a month, during September 2012.
Busaiteen is a small town in northern Bahrain. It is located on Muharraq Island, just north of Muharraq City. Its native inhabitants are Bahrani Shia. Since the 18th century, Busaiteen has been inhabited by Sunni Arab immigrants, where they form the majority of the town's population today. On January 1, 2012, a woman native to the town called Fakhriyya Jassim inhaled tear gas fired by security forces in Jid Ali. She died 2 days later on January 3.
Shaikh Isa Causeway
Shaikh Isa Causeway is a causeway in the Kingdom of Bahrain connecting Busaiteen to the Diplomatic Area, near the Seef area. Opened to the public in January 1997, it was constructed to relieve the congestion of the previous bridge connecting Muharraq Island to the mainland Bahrain Island. It can be recognized by its triangular white columns, meant to symbolise sails. It is named after the deceased emir of Bahrain, Isa bin Salman al-Khalifa.
Bahrain Pearling Trail
The Bahrain pearling trail is a 3.5 km trail located in the island of Muharraq, in Bahrain, that was used by pearl divers during much of Bahrain's history until the early 1930s, when the pearl market in Bahrain crashed as a result of the introduction of cultured pearls from Japan. Pearling in Bahrain has occurred since 2000 BC.
