Definitely not a city to shy away from World Records, Dubai has taken on another!
Along with the world’s biggest shopping mall and the world’s tallest tower - to name just a few of the over 140 records, the world’s biggest jigsaw puzzle has now been added to the fleet. The 12,000-piece puzzle, created in celebration of the Year of Zayed, depicts the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
The spectacular puzzle spans across 6,000 square metres in the Uptown Dubai district within the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) free zone.
“The late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan was a visionary leader of rare perception. His Highness was confident, charismatic, encouraged the continuous pursuit of excellence and made bold decisions in the face of uncertainty. He also created a sense of collective purpose and possessed a granite understanding of progress for his people,” said Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman, DMCC.
“The remarkable growth story that is the modern UAE is the direct result of his ambitious vision for the country, and resolute determination to bring it to fruition. The Year of Zayed represents an important moment for us all to reflect on this reality, and I commend the entire team behind the initiative for promoting his legacy in such a meaningful way. At DMCC, it is our hope that with this world record achievement, we have shown our support for the national project and gratitude for the inspiring Founding Father of the UAE,” he added.
