Bridge linking Bu Maher Fort and Bahrain Pearling Path to open this year

The Bahrain Pearling Path is one of the best attractions in the Kingdom, previously winning the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, and earning a place on the UNESCO world heritage site lists.

And soon it’ll be even easier to enjoy, as the pedestrian bridge linking Bu Maher Fort with the beginning of the trail is set to open later this year.

The fort, which was built in 1840, marks the beginning of the path and once served as the main fishing harbour in the area. It contains a 3D display explaining the history of the path, and the various stops along the way.

Currently, visitors to the fort have to buy a boat ticket from the Bahrain National Museum for BHD1.

The bridge is part of four projects set to be finished by the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities (BACA) this year.

BACA are also restorating the Al Fadhil Mosque minaret, and launching a second sound and light show - this time at Riffa Fort.

The fourth project will see a textile factory open in Bani Jamra.
