The whole of old Murrabaq is very nice specially if you follow the pearl route and this palace is one of its gems. there are about 5 to 6 traditional pearling houses you can visit and this one is one of the best

This is the palace of Bait Shaikh Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa who was the ruler of Bahrain from 1942 until his death in 1961. Not much to see here. Avoid.

For those who love history, culture and heritage, this is a must visit place. Does not need more than an hour to cover the palace.
