Situated at the heart of the Dubai Mall, the city’s tallest performing Dubai fountain was officially inaugurated in May 2009. The majestic fountain, which is well-lit by 6,600 dazzling lights and 25 different coloured projectors has the capacity to blast water as high as 500 feet which is equivalent to a 50-story skyscraper. The interior of the fountain has high-pressured water shooters that cause the water to dance. At any time, it has the capacity to shoot 22,000 gallons of water into the air. Additionally, it can generate a variety of patterns and combinations in the air, which is often admired by visitors.

Immersed under the 30-acre Burj Lake, you will be mesmerised by the vibrant, lit jets as they move in sync with the breath-taking dance of lights, water, and several musical genres, ranging from Arabic to classical and back again. Popular Dubai fountain songs include Thriller by Michael Jackson, Time to Say Goodbye by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman, and Power by the Korean pop group EXO makes the water dance to its tunes.

Just Imagine, how beautiful and charismatic the view of the fountain would be. Well, let us take you deep into some amazing highlights of the Dubai Fountain below.

Even though the fountain shows perform during the day, it is best seen around sunset or right after when laser and light shows go along with the music and offer visitors a never seen experience.
