This dancing fountain — situated on the man-made island of Palm Jumeirah — has been captivating visitors since 2020. Breaking a world record, it has over 3,000 LED lights, 7,500 nozzles, and can shoot water up to 105 metres.
Besides mesmerising the public with its dancing fountains, the site has also been a venue for spectacular fireworks display on special occasions.
In aerial night shots of the Palm, the fountain serves as the perfect accent to the golden glow of the Atlantis and the scenic waterfront destination.
A spokesperson from Nakheel, the developer behind the project, said the decision was taken "after careful consideration and planning". Updates and more details are expected in due course.
"Nakheel remains committed to providing the best experiences possible to citizens, residents and visitors of Dubai," the spokesperson added.
