Barbar, Bahrain

The Barbar Temple is an archaeological site and considered to be part of the Dilmun culture. The Barbar complex consists of three successive temples built over 5 stages and dating back to the 2nd and 3rd millennium BC. They were built on platforms, organized around a courtyard and thought to have been constructed to worship gods. A sunken chamber enclosing a fresh water spring constitutes the focus of a cult believed to be associated with the Mesopotamia God of wisdom and sweet water Enki.
