Know More About Al Jasra House:

Made of coral stone and palm tree trunks, Al Jasra House has been standing since 1917 and was the birthplace in 1933 of the former emir (king), Sheikh Isa bin Sulman Al Khalifa. It offers a fascinating glimpse into a not-so-distant past when wind towers (ingenious cooling systems predating air conditioning) dominated the Bahraini skyline.

The village of Al Jasra was noted for having a strong handcrafting history, as with most villages in Bahrain, with some having their own souqs. A local handicraft centre was launched in 1990 to preserve the arts and crafts of Al Jasra village. Crafts traditionally produced by the village included woodworks, basket weaving, sadow making, pottery making, cloth weaving, and textile weaving.
