View of the twin minarets of Al Khamis Mosque in Tashan on Bahrain Island. In the foreground a thicket of trees and shrubs grows in the left foreground in an expanse of sand. Behind it the twin minarets of Al Khamis Mosque rise high above. Each tower has a wooden platform with a railing half way up the tower, and an opening at the top of the tower. Between the two towers a ruined archway is visible.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
