Dubai Fountain Introduction
- Oct 31, 2016 -

The Dubai Fountain is the world's largest fountain system set on the 30 acre manmade Burj Khalifa Lake, at the center of the Downtown

Dubai development in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Illuminated by 6,600 lights and 25 colored projectors, it is 275 m long and shoots water up to 152.4 m into the air accompanied by a range of classical to contemporary Arabic and world music.

It was built at a cost of USD $218 million.

The name of the fountain was chosen after a contest organized by the developer Emaar Properties, the result of which was announced on 26 October 2008.

Testing of the fountain began in February 2009, and the fountain was officially inaugurated on 8 May 2009 along with the official opening ceremony of The Dubai Mall.

On 2 January 2010 the length of Dubai fountains was increased to 275 m.

The fountain is animated with performances set to light and music. It is visible from every point on the lake promenade and from many neighboring structures. Performances take 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 6 pm to 11 pm on weekends (weekends being Thursday, Friday, and Saturday).
