Abu Dhabi is working on another record-breaking structure for the UAE: the world’s tallest gate at 25 metres.
The gate forms part of the the Khalifa in World Languages project, carried out by the Sultan Bin Zayed’s Culture and Media Centre.
It will be launched on National Day (December 2) and dedicated to UAE president Sheikh Khalifa.
The project will also include a printed encyclopedia, a specially commissioned operetta and a website.
The scheme is already underway and confirmed last week by state news agency Wam, which reported the project had been approved by Guinness World Records.
