15 Photos Of The Wonderfully Bizarre Dubai Miracle Garden That Is Built On A Desert
The Dubai Miracle Garden is unique in that it was essentially built on a desert.
Home to 150 million flowers and situated adjacent to Dubailand, Dubai Miracle Garden is the brainchild of the engineer Abdel Nasser Rahhal, and is meant to act as an outdoor attraction for residents and tourists alike.
What truly catches the eye are the quirky flower-covered structures that seem to have been placed at random around the garden.
The giant peacocks, an oversized clock and an upside-down house are three of the more memorable, Wonderland-esque features.
The Flower Falls, an area consisting of giant flowerpots and flowers, is designed to give the impression that the flowers are pouring out of the pots.
Head landscaper Akar says that the grounds are a great example of how it is possible to “green the desert” by reusing waste water.
Designers took additional precautions to protect the beautiful garden arrangements from the environment.
For instance, the garden’s perimeter is lined with trees that are used as windbreakers.
