Manama Capital of Bahrain

Manama is the capital and largest city of the Kingdom of Bahrain, a flat and small archipelago, in the Persian Gulf.


The oil boom of the 1970s greatly benefited Manama/Bahrain. The city is a very modern city with a impressive skyline.


The summers are very hot with a high humidity, especially in the summer nights. During the day temperatures can reach above 48C (118F).

Most rainfalls occur in the winter season, recorded maximum of 7.2 cm (+/-3 inch). Winters are mild and very hot. Average temperatures of the summer and winter seasons are generally from 17C (63F) to about 45C (113F). The most pleasant time in Bahrain is autumn when sunshine is low, along with warm temperatures tempered by soft breezes.


Manama is a popular tourist destination, because of its authentic Arab heritage and a reputation as a relatively liberal and modern city.


The official religion of Bahrain is Islam, which the majority of the people practices. In 2001, 80% of Bahrain's population was Muslim, 10%

were Christian, and 10% practiced other religions.


Bahrain is more liberal than its neighbours. While Islam is the main religion, Bahrainis have been known for their tolerance, and Churches, Hindu temples, Sikh Gurdwara and a Jewish synagogue can be found alongside mosques.


That's why Bahrain/Manama is sometimes called the "Middle East lite"
