Last Photo Answer: Qal’at al-Bahrain (Bahrain Fort) – Manama Bahrain
Where in the World?
I would like to think the rock formations do a fairly good job of giving this location away If at least you know where it’s located. They are definitely a well known tourist site in this area and one that was designed as a natural wonder by the government.
The fortress itself (which you can see the gate of below) has significant historical and cultural significance and is quite old indeed.
The fortress itself dates back to the time period of the Romans as was expanded several times over its history most notable after it was captured by the Ottomans in the 14th century.
There are quite a lot of legends based on the rocks based on woman and men turning to stone which formed some of the “rock formations”. You can see ones that people call the school girl, the bear, horse, and others. Its certainly fascinating.
