Bahraini Houses Through Wedding Days

Post  Anood.A on Mon Jan 21, 2008 4:57 pm

Hello Everyone Very Happy

This Topic Represents The Glad And Joy That Happens Through Wedding Days In The Traditional Bahraini Houses

Hope You Enjoy Smile

Bahrain's comparatively new Heritage Centre was opened on National Day in December 1984. It is situated across the causeway in Manama, and can be found on Government Road in the old law court building. Modelled on the style of a Bahraini house, the Centre contains many artefacts of a bygone era, and seeks to portray traditional occupations and pastimes. The exhibits are housed in a number of rooms, all leading from a central, open-air courtyard. Falconry, pearl-diving and boating all have their own displays.

Rooms on the Centre's first floor reconstruct traditional decor, which has practically disappeared from today's Bahraini houses. The typical kitchen, with its copper pots and pans and its suspended storage shelf, known as almurfa, is well worth a visit. Al-Ma'isha, the living room, is also an interesting area, but the pièce de résistance is, without doubt, the wedding bedroom. Decorated with mirrors and huge coloured glass ornaments, this would have been the best room in the bride's father's house. In pride of place stands the huge, four-poster bed, with its wooden canopy draped with a richly decorated awning. In a room such as this, the bridal couple would stay for two weeks after the wedding, until the gift day (adiya).
