The Tree of Life (Arabic:Shajarat al-Hayah) is a 400-year old mesquite tree in Bahrain which is considered a natural wonder. This unique tree stands alone in the desert about 1.2 miles (two kilometers) from the Jebel Dukhan.

The source of water for this tree still remains a mystery, because it stands in a place completely free of water whatsoever.

Trivia: It is mentioned in the movie "LA Story"
