Shajarat Al Hayah or The Tree of Life

Today photo is a famous tree in Bahrain called The Tree of Life or in arabic translated as Shajarat Al Hayah. Actually I already posted it yeterday but today I want to show how it looks from afar. It is a very old tree of 400 year old and considered as a natural wonder. It stands alone in a desert near Al Areen area. Until today, the source of its water still remains a mystery because it stands in a place completely out of water.

It is a mesquite tree and the reason why it survives the harshes life of the desert you could find here at Wikipedia (Lol I am doing a little research on this one).
