Bahrain: Archeologists confirm Muharraq’s Al Sayah Island is man-made

A team holding excavations and archaeological surveys on the historic Al Sayah Island in Muharraq found that it’s ‘man-made’, and created in the middle of the Sea around a freshwater spring at least 1,200 years ago.

The earlier belief was that the island was the aftereffect of some natural phenomenon.

However, the new ‘unexpected’ finding now opens doors into the remarkable engineering prowess of the ancient people of Bahrain. The historic Al Saya Island, located off the coast of Busaiteen, is thus proving to be a treasure trove of Muharraq’s ancient history.
