The People of Manama Souq

The Kingdom of Bahrain’s largest street bazaar is named after its capital, Manama Souq or Bab al-Bahrain to most of its locals. It lies in the north of Manama, in-between the old parts of the city and the Central Business District, to the east of Noaim and west of Ras Rumman. The area also is home to Bahrain’s only synagogue. Like a rib cage protecting a hearts, the souq shelters its inner city inhabitants from the desert heat and frequent dust storms.
