Looks like a beautiful mosque thre, but what are those buildings?

If I am not completely wrong (and I might be) it is some old graves. In Bahrain there are plenty of what looks like only large piles of sands that are actually old graves and I think this is one of them. Please Bahraini readers correct me if I am wrong🙂 .

Ah, grave mounds….I never thought they were soooo huge – I know them from Korea, and they were much smaller😀

Aha, they have big fields with these grave mounds here in Bahrain. There is a wellknown one in A’ali actually but the mounds are smaller than this one. It did puzzle me to see a few really large one among houses. I thought, if it is only piles of sand then why would they keep them and fence them😛 ?

I don’t know, we have a lot of mounds in front of our house, but those are sure as heck no grave mounds😉
But they have no fences either🙂

I heard about that popular one, didn’t get around to see it though. Hubby is not so much into sightseeing😛

Ah, it WAS Bahrain, not SO stupid then…🙂

I dont recognize the area so I cant be sure but If i’m not mistaken, those are not burial mounds but small clay hills.

good to have u back Brain🙂
So if it is just clay hills, it makes me wonder why they dont remove them. I mean they are quite large. It’s just next to Aalis Pottery (Bottery) Barn in Aali.
