King Fahad Causeway - Linking Bahrain to Saudi Arabia, the 25 KM long causeway is one of the most expensive bridges in the world. The opening of this causeway marked the beginning of a new era in the development of transportation between two countries.

The causeway traverses Umm Nasan island, which is a sanctuary for wild life. Many people visit this causeway due to its attraction. The Riffa Fort, which was built in 18th century situated on a low escarpment overlooking the Riffa valley, held a strong strategic location in days gone by. A section of the Arabic religious documents including a beautiful display of illuminated Quran are placed here. A tourist will get many more information about the fascinating history of Bahrain from this fort. Siyadi House is one of the impressive examples of the 19th century architecture. It was built by a Pearl merchant Ahmed Bin Qassem Siyadi. It has many fine features to see including ornate ceilings, stained glass windows, carved screens and a large safe set into the wall. Excavations, which were begun in the 1950s and 1960s, have revealed three-stone-built temples dating from the second and third millennia BC. It is believed that they were built as a place of worship for the God of Spring Waters, Enki, and a sacred well within the complex strengthens this theory.
