Ad-Diraz Temple is located just off the highway in Budaiyya. There isn't much to see and the place is difficult to find. Avoid.

It is hard to get to this place and there are often fights taking place between the locals and the police. It is run down and not much to see. Bahrain doesn't take much pride in it's history so you will be disappointed.

Sadly, like so many archaeological sites in Bahrain they are not well kept. Even sadder is the site is in the middle of a village where the government clashes with the villagers about every other day. This is all a part of the past 2.5...More
