Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountain light up with special Eid show – in pictures

The show, created in celebration of Eid Al Fitr, will take place over the holiday

Special shows in celebration of Eid Al Fitr lit up Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountain on Tuesday evening for the first time.

The public holiday for the Islamic celebration that marks the end of Ramadan runs until Saturday, and each day at 8pm, Burj Khalifa is projecting a new LED light show. The Dubai Fountain is also presenting a new choreographed dance.

Both have never been seen before and are choreographed to a track called Esmaha Dubai, written by Emirati composer and director Mohamed Al Ahmed, who is also making his debut.

Burj Khalifa famously lights up throughout the year with projections marking important events and in solidarity with other nations.

Towards the end of April, the tower, as well as other UAE landmarks, projected India's flag as a show of support while the country grapples with a deadly second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Dubai Fountain is one of the world's largest choreographed fountains, which performs shows set to music, daily.
