Special Ramadan show lights up Burj Khalifa in Dubai


The structure’s LED lights have just been programmed to illuminate the world’s tallest tower with the traditional symbols of Ramadan, including the crescent moon, eight-pointed star and mosque.

The show is projected onto the world’s largest display screen every night and visitors in Dubai Mall or Downtown Burj Khalifa can catch it at 7:45 and 9:45pm from Sunday through Wednesday, with two additional shows at 8:45 and 10:45 from Thursday through Saturday.

The nightly light shows on the Burj Khalifa are one of the highlights of the visit of every visitor in Downtown or Dubai Mall.

The world’s largest shopping centre welcomed 22m visitors during the first three months of the year alone, and over 80m  for the past five consecutive years.

The high volume of footfall traffic has been fuelled by the growth in the number of tourists visiting Dubai, coupled with high frequency of visit by UAE residents.
