Percolate the Charm of Largest Fountain in Dubai

Dubai, a well known country by everyone, popular for its highest, largest, longest, First in the whole world. One of the highest, largest and the first things of Dubai is its largest Fountain famous all across the globe. Dubai’s Fountain is the largest fountain in the world set on a manmade Lake Burj Khalifa. It is a popular tourist place in Dubai.

The contract of this fountain was given to a California based company-WET Design which designed it exquisitely at a cost of USD 218 million.  It is 275 m high that one can see it from 20 miles away. It is the brightest point illuminated on earth when seen from the sky that spot in the middle east. It was inaugurated on 26 October 2008. Testing of the fountain began in February 2009, and then was officially inaugurated on 8th May 2009 along with the official opening ceremony of the largest “Dubai Mall”. The length of this fountain was increased to 275 m after some time.

This large and unique fountain is illuminated by 6,600 lights and 25 colored projectors. This fountain can spray approximately 22,000 gallons of water in the air at a time and shoots up to 500 ft into the air accompanied by a range of classical to contemporary Arabic and world music. It waters the air in many different combinations and patterns.

This Fountain contains many high-pressure water jets and shooters that shoots the water even under more pressure up to 240 feet in the air and some extreme shooters are also there that shoots the water under the most pressured up to 500 ft. Shooters create a loud “boom” noise after the water is ejected. The main or super shooters use least of time like on the special occasions as it takes a lot time to build up enough pressure and energy to shoot water to such a great height in the air.

One of the best things that exhilarate anyone after seeing this fountain is its dance performance. It dances on the national and famous songs like Sama Dubai, Baba Yetu, Shik Shak Shok, In Shed An Aldar, etc.  The dance performance takes place at 1.00 pm and at 1.30 pm as well as every 30 minutes from 6 pm to 10 pm on weekdays, and from 6pm to 11pm on weekends.

  2. I actually hadn't heard of this fountain before but it definitely looks spectacular! Dubai is a pretty common "stopover" on the way to Europe, so I'll have to check it out if I'm ever in that city. Thanks! :)
