Dubai is officially home to the largest fountain in the world, after becoming the new world record holder.
The Palm Fountain, which covers an area of 1,335 square metres, is located at The Pointe shopping and dining district on Palm Jumeirah, a man-made palm-shaped island.
Mask-clad people, in keeping with coronavirus safety measures, gathered on Thursday evening to watch a show of dancing jets of water, musci and lights.
