This beautiful building is 828 meters tall and is next to Dubai Mall. Since it opened in 2010, people from all over the world have been coming to see it. There are two decks where you can get the best views of the Burj Khalifa. The two-story building The 124th and 125th floors have the At the Top deck, and the 148th floor has one of the highest viewing decks in the world, at 555 meters.

The tall building is based on a simplified drawing of the Hymenocallis flower. It is made up of three parts that are grouped around a central core. When seen from above, it looks like the onion-dome style that is common in many types of Islamic buildings. Around the base of the tall tower, there is a lively area with lots of places to eat and have fun, such as Dubai Mall, the choreographed musical Dubai Fountain, and many tourist sites to keep you and the other huge crowds of fans busy.
