SHORT INFORMATION

Manama is the capital of Bahrain

Juffair is the recently developed district of Manama, the capital of Kingdom of Bahrain. The majority of this part of Bahrain was submerged under the sea and it was only after 1970 that land reclamation started in the area. As a result of land reclamation, Juffair is now home to many posh villas, restaurants and hotels.
