The Ibn Battuta Mall is a large shopping mall on the Sheikh Zayed Roadmarker in Dubaimarker close to Interchange 6 for Jebel Alimarker Village. It is named after famous traveller and explorer Ibn Battuta. This project was completed by the Nakheel Properties group in early 2005. The names of the six courts of the mall are named after the countries to which Ibn Battuta travelled.

The mall is split into six main courts:

  1. Chinamarker
  2. Indiamarker
  3. Persiamarker
  4. Egyptmarker
  5. Tunisiamarker
  6. Andalusiamarker

Linking shopping and circulation areas, all the major outlets found in almost all of the shopping malls elsewhere in Dubai and the Middle East are represented. Géant, a large Frenchmarker supermarket chain has a store here. The mall is an example of one of the many ambitious projects by Nakheel Properties in Dubai.

Australian retail giant Myer has announced that it will have a store completed by 2010

Ibn Battuta Mall boasts the only IMAX theatre in the country and also offers a 21-screen Cinema Megaplex, located in the China Court. There are two large food courts, located at both ends (Andalusia and China) of the mall, as well as several coffee shops, scattered throughout the mall.

The mall features exhibits of ancient technological inventions, especially from the Middle East. These include as a centrepiece a modern full-size working reproduction of an elephant clock, an Islamic invention consisting of a water-powered clock in the form of an elephant.
