"The Tree Of Life In Bahrain"

The Tree of Life (Sharajat-al-Hayat) in Bahrain is a 400 year-old mesquite tree that lives in the middle of the desert. The mystery of the survival of the tree and it's location have made it a legend. The local inhabitants believe -- with all their heart -- that this was the actual location of the Garden of Eden.

The Tree of Life stands alone in the heart of the desert, on top of a 25-foot-high sandy hill. And there are no other trees in the vacinity. It's a mystery where the tree gets its water, but scientist say its roots go very deep and wide in order to get water from the reserves of sweet springs miles away.

Here are some photos of this unusual tree. Take a peek, and enjoy!
