A man-made cave which will use interactive technology to illustrate the miracles related in the Quran is set to be built in Dubai.
It will sit alongside a building called the Glass House which will contain plants mentioned in the holy books of Islam.
The $27m project in an area called Quran Park has been approved by Shaikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Minister of Finance and Chairman of Dubai Municipality.
Eng. Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director General of Dubai Municipality said: “The Quran Park is considered to be one of the most important creative initiatives of Dubai Municipality in the establishment of parks and increasing the green areas in the emirate of Dubai.
“Setting up of this park is a great achievement for the city of Dubai in the field of landscaping and will be one of the most prominent, unique and distinctive landmark hosted by Dubai emirate. It will also be a great attraction for tourists and residents of the emirate.”
The park, in Al Khawaneej, will consist of 12 gardens and trees will have solar panel attached to them.
Lootah added: “The park is considered a great opportunity to explain the meanings of a lot of wonders and miracles mentioned in the Holy Quran in the scientific and medical fields, and the benefits of the plants mentioned in the Holy Quran and how modern medicine is highly dependent upon these plants for treatments as well as their environmental benefits.”
