Located very close to the Dubai Mall, outside the fountains. There are some very interesting restaurants, especially those with outdoor terraces. Clothing shops, jewelery, gifts of various kinds, it is worthwhile to pass if you are in the area.

Never knew that you can find this beautiful place just beside Dubai Mall. It's simple yet elegant. If you'll go inside, you'll be amazed on how beautiful place was designed. Much more to see outside.

Positives: Quietness. Inspiring historical designs and decorations. Well guiding maps and signboards. View on waterfall. Prayer room and toilets. Areas of improvement: Overpriced shopping. Difficult to get there, difficult accessibility.
