The Ibn battuta mall dedicated to the great travellor is a delight and a fitting tribute to his memory

Who was Ibn Battuta?

Ibn Battuta was great Muslim traveller from Persia, who travelled the length and breadth of Asia, North Africa and the Middle East in the 14th century. Ibn Battuta also visited India. There is a lovely shopping mall dedicated to Ibn Battuta and the countries he visited. This shopping mall is located at Jebel Ali and has a distinct architecture.

The Mall

The Mall has a number of sections each dedicated to the country Battuta had visited. Thus there is the China section with a huge wooden galley (ship) on display. In the India section an elephant and a Mahout are prominently displayed. There are sections dedicated to Persia, Tunisia and Egypt. Along with the shops one is witness to the beauty of the places Ibn Battuta visited. There are also some lovely exhibits of that period that make the mall one of the most interesting I have seen

India China sections

The India and China sections are the biggest and show the prominence of these nations in that period. It’s a wonderful place to visit and one can spend an entire day window shopping, looking at the exhibits and taste the culinary delights of these regions. It is worth a visit.
I have visited the Ibn Battuta mall and look forward to another visit there
