Bahrain is located on an archipelago consisting of 33 islands. The islands are low-lying and rocky, with the exception of Bahrain Island, which rises to an elevation of 443 feet in its center. Bahrain's unique features include 170,000 “tumuli” or burial mounds, Bahrain Fort with foundations dating from 3000 B.C. and the 7th century Khamis Mosque, believed to be the oldest in the Gulf.
