Ibn Battuta Mall

Ibn Battuta Mall

Inspired by a Legend


At Ibn Battuta Mall, shopping, dining and entertainment blend naturally with history, culture and the story of a remarkable adventure, making us one of Dubai’s most exciting shopping and retail destinations.

In June 1335, a young man of just 21 years set out to explore the world. His journey spanned 24 years and six different lands - Tunisia, Egypt, Persia, India, China and Andalusia. Along the way, he survived storms and pirates, served as a judge, a scholar and dined with nobles and commoners.

This extraordinary adventure was Ibn Battuta, whose life and travels are a true inspiration, influencing our mall in both design and spirit, and reflected throughout by court names and themes.
