Re-organizing[edit]

I don't know if anybody is actively looking to improve this page; but I think we need to split up Seef, Juffair, etc as articles of its own, rather than giving two-liners in the Manama article. I'm doing just that. Once I have individual articles for each place, I'm just going to link those new pages here rather than describing each place. I have listed out places in Bahrain on the Bahrain page. We need to create articles on each place. -- Shijaz 20:02, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

I agree with you that we need to move some of the topics here to the main topic bahrain. Bahrainjeblat 10:38, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

"Proper" city page[edit]

I decided to start trying to turn this into a city article worthy of the name, with the usual city sections. It needs a lot more work, however. Nach0king 13:41, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Murjan Tower?[edit]

It'd be nice if someone could start an article on Murjan Tower. Not much known about it, but it is referenced in the article for Tallest Structure in the World. -- Vinnie1337 03:00, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

With al- or without al-[edit]

Should the country be spelled as in Arabic: al-Manama or without it: Manama? Can the version with al-be considered a variant? --Atitarev (talk) 00:26, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

It can be spelled as Al-Manāmah(المنامة) in Arabic and Manama in English. But in conditions name also spelled Al-Manama in English. -- Navin Shetty Brahmavar 08:38, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Population?[edit]

It states in this article that the population of Manama is 155,000 and that this is about one quarter of the total Bahrain population - which is listed on the Bahrain page as over one million. How does this work?  PN57  23:29, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Smackdown![edit]

Good smackdown on Qatar, "...it wasn’t long before the Al Khalifa family appeared from nowhere, or at least from nearby Qatar...". Was it intentional to call Qatar nowhere? 138.162.128.53 (talk) 19:55, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

New image in the infobox?[edit]

Most pages on cities have a collage of images of the city in question, however that is not the case here. I've been thinking of replacing the Manama skyline photo with this one; yay or nay ?[1] Or someone could make their own collage with all the photos on here. Either would do.--Droodkin (talk) 21:04, 26 August 2012 (UTC)
