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 Island is the third largest island in the archipelago of Bahrain after Bahrain Island and Hawar Island. It is named after Muharraq City, the former capital of Bahrain. There are several towns and villages located on the Island, including: Al Muharraq Al Dair Arad Busaiteen Hidd Galali Halat Bu Maher Halat Nuaim (connected by road) Halat Seltah (connected by road) Samaheej Bahrain International Airport and the Muharraq Airfield are also located on the island.
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.

Galali used to be the farthest north point of Bahrain before the development of the manmade artificial islands of Amwaj Islands. Galali in Arabic means a group of cliffs, a high place, this is when people first found out this area of Bahrain they know it by its small cliffs and referred to it by that name. Around 2000 people used to live in Galali (1991 census).
