The meaning of «ibn battuta mall»

The Ibn Battuta Mall is a large shopping mall[1] on the Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai, UAE, close to Interchange 6 for Jebel Ali Village.

Having around 275 shops, 50 restaurants, a 21-screen cinema and over 4,500 parking spaces on a total of 521,000 m2 (5,610,000 sq ft), Ibn Battuta is the world's largest themed shopping mall.[2] On 26 May 2013, Nakheel announced the tender for Ibn Battuta Mall expansion – a new, 28,000 m2 (300,000 sq ft) retail hub for another 150 shops.[3] The mall consists of six courts, each of whose designs are inspired by some of the countries visited by the Moroccan Berber explorer, Ibn Battuta: Andalusia Court, China Court, Egypt Court, India Court, Persia Court, and Tunisia Court.[2] The India Court features a working reproduction of an elephant clock.

The eponymous Ibn Battuta metro station on the Dubai Metro provides access from central Dubai.
